Why File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Reasons To File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Losing a loved one suddenly is devastating. If someone else’s negligence or ill intent caused their death … that is an entirely different level of pain.
It can be hard when you are hurting from someone’s death to want to think about lawsuits. But there are valid reasons to file a wrongful death lawsuit, and if you are successful in obtaining damages or a settlement, you will also have additional financial support to get you through this difficult part of your life.

Why File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

At The Pirnia Law Group, we see people come in every day who are thinking about filing a wrongful death lawsuit. There are several key reasons they consider it:

  • They need the money. They are a spouse, domestic partner, surviving child, or another relative who was dependent on the deceased and now must find another way to support themselves and their family.
  • They have expenses related to the death that they think the defendant should pay, including funeral/burial expenses and medical bills .
  • It feels like the right thing to do. In California, civil lawsuits can be filed independently of, or in addition to, any criminal proceedings for charges such as murder or involuntary manslaughter. It is a way to ask the defendant to take responsibility for the damage they caused you.

“No one at our law firm would ever tell you that you are going to feel better emotionally if you prevail in your wrongful death lawsuit. But practically speaking, if you made a life with this person and built a household together, you may be on the edge financially now that he or she is gone.

“Our firm believes that if someone else is at fault in your loved one’s death, it is a moral imperative to ask them to take responsibility for the damage they caused your family. It is the right thing to do. And we can help you ask them.” — Ol’ Uncle Ardy, a.k.a. Ardy Pirnia
