Fighting for Compensation on Behalf of Grieving Families in California

Losing a loved one under tragic circumstances is often the most difficult experience people will ever go through. The Leigh Law Firm is sensitive to the grieving process and knows how to navigate the legal process without causing additional stress for grieving family members.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in California?

If you have lost a loved one as a result of an accident caused by another person’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

The decedent’s immediate family members, including parents, a surviving spouse, or children, may have a legal claim for wrongful death compensation.

What Damages Are Available in a Wrongful Death Claim?

Compensation can include:

  • Emotional damages associated with the loss of your loved one
  • Loss of companionship and moral support
  • Medical bills
  • Funeral costs
  • Financial support
  • Inheritance
  • Anticipated future earnings

The Insurance Company Should Be Our Problem, Not Yours

Wrongful death claims can make things complicated with the insurance company responsible for providing compensation. When they contact you, they will likely give their condolences and try to sound like they are on your side.

In truth, the insurance company is primarily interested in protecting its bottom line. Wrongful death presents a tricky situation for them, because they don’t want to sound callous, but they also want to save as much money as possible. They are hoping you will be willing to take their word as an authority and accept whatever terms they set.

As an experienced wrongful death lawyer in San Diego, Alexander Leigh knows how to find out how much your case is really worth and press the insurance company to compensate you fairly. You have a lot on your mind right now—let us handle the insurance company so that you can focus on what’s important.

Can I Sue For Emotional Distress?

For those who have lost loved ones due to the unfortunate circumstances of wrongful death, it is not uncommon for emotional distress to be left behind as a lasting daily struggle.

Emotional distress may show itself in:

  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • And other symptoms that cause a hinderance on your daily life and wellbeing

If you suffer from emotional distress as a result of a wrongful death, seek compensation right away!

How Can I Prove Emotional Distress?

Like any legal claim, proof needs to be accompanied by a claim of emotional distress. Friends and/or family may be required to testify on your behalf.

Additionally, you will likely need to provide examples of the ways in which your daily life has been negatively altered due to your emotional distress.

These examples may include explanations on an inability to:

  • Drive
  • Work
  • Care for loved ones
  • And more
