If family member is killed as a result of another’s negligent or wrongful act, the loss will be especially hard on the family, both emotionally and financially. If you are considering legal action relating to a wrongful death, you may choose to consult with a Fresno Wrongful Death Lawyer. A wrongful death action may be brought by a close family member to the decedent.
A wrongful death action may be brought by the close relatives of the victim to seek compensation for the victim’s death which includes the loss of love, companionship, advice, emotional and financial support.
A family member may also file a “survival action,” where California Law allows compensation to the victim’s estate for the pain and suffering and other damages and actual expenses incurred by the victim that were suffered up to the moment of death.
