Fresno Personal Injury Attorney


Wrongful death is any loss of life caused by the careless actions or negligence of another. Wrongful death claims and lawsuits usually come out of

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home and elder abuse
  • Stalling by a health insurance company over covering life-saving surgery

A wrongful death claim is a remedy that attempts to measure the financial loss that the family will suffer because they lost their loved one. It may be measured in terms of that person’s lost future earnings as well as their lost companionship and the pain and suffering this loss has meant for you and your family. It can also include compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, and burial fees. In the case of especially serious wrongdoing, it can seek punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer.

Taking legal action may be the furthest thing from your mind, but it could help prevent a similar tragic loss for another family. Also, please note that time is short – wrongful death cases must be filed within a specific time period or you risk losing your right to financial compensation.

Because the defendants in wrongful death cases are usually large insurance companies and corporations with enormous financial resources, you need an attorney who cannot be intimidated. You need an attorney who will fight aggressively on your behalf. You need an experienced attorney who will not make mistakes in preparing your claim, during negotiations, or in trial that could reduce the amount of compensation you receive. You need Gerald Schwab.
