Why You Should Pursue A Wrongful Death Case

When an act of negligence takes the life of your loved one, you and your family deserve justice. Often this justice can come in the form of reparations made by the negligent party.

At Hildebrand McLeod & Nelson LLP, our lawyers understand that money in no way compares to the life of your loved one. But in helping you obtain fair and full compensation, we hope to alleviate some of the burdens a loss can cause.

How To Know If You Have A Strong Claim

There are cases in which you immediately know that a wrongful death has occurred. But some situations may not be as clear. Knowing what constitutes a wrongful death case can help you decide when to pursue compensation.

Here are a few ways in which a wrongful death can occur:

Whether your loved one passed away due to a fatal accident or occupational hazard, we can help. Money won’t replace the person you have lost. But a successful verdict or settlement may give you the closure you need.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late To File Your Suit

If you have lost a loved one, California law entitles you to be fairly compensated. However, due to the deadlines that are in place, you must act quickly. For this reason, enlisting the help of an attorney at once is highly recommended. Let us handle court bureaucracy so you can focus on grieving and healing from your loss.
