Death by anything other than unnatural causes, in which someone is declared negligent, is known under law as ‘wrongful death’. Be it a car accident, a construction accident, a boating accident, recklessness, medical malpractice etc., if an involved party is proved negligent and thus assisted in the ‘wrongful death‘ of another, the relatives of the deceased have a right to recover damages and receive compensation.
Though a human life is worth more than any amount of money, compensation is needed for medical bills, funeral costs etc., and the family members of a deceased victim are entitled to file suit. If a loved one has been killed in the Los Angeles area (wrongful death in hollywood, santa monica, culver city, beverly hills etc.) because of the negligence of another, don’t hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney who can explain the measure of damages in wrongful death cases. These tragedies have lasting impacts and the pain and suffering might last a lifetime, but a personal injury attorney can at least help in dealing with the costs and extensive bills of these awful outcomes.
