A Lawyer Will Need to Know About Your Loved One’s Passing
Part of effective representation is being familiar with how a wrongful death happened. After all, the specifics of how your loved one passed away may determine whether one or more parties caused their death.
A wrongful death could occur under many different circumstances. Those circumstances include:
- A pedestrian accident (the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) notes that 893 pedestrians died in traffic accidents in 2018.)
- An accident between two or more motor vehicles, including those that involved alcohol- or drug-impaired drivers
- Accidents or intentional acts, such as a crime, due to insufficient security on a private or public property
- A slip or trip and fall accident caused by a hazard on a premise
- Any other type of accident caused by a dangerous property, as California Civil Code (CIV) §1714 explains that property owners in California have a duty of care to maintain a safe property
- Medical malpractice
- Animal attacks
- Accidents caused by or made worse by defective products
- Fire-related hazards
- On-the-job hazards
- Accidents that occur in a nursing home
Every wrongful death warrants its day in court, including in civil court. You and your loved ones can bring your case to an Anaheim wrongful death lawyer, and they may take your case off of your hands and into the legal system.

A Wrongful Death Can Leave a Massive Void
One of the questions that your lawyer will answer during the course of your case is how your loved one’s passing negatively affected you.
Different surviving family members may face different consequences as a result of your loved one’s passing. The following may be some of the outcomes that you or your other surviving family members have suffered because of a wrongful death.
Loss of Comfort
Your deceased loved one may have provided comfort to their spouse, their parents, their siblings, and their children. Though this comfort could be difficult to quantify, the loss of such comfort could leave a significant void in your life.
Your lawyer may rely on established practices to determine how much losing the comfort of a loved one has cost you and your family. Various family members may be entitled to compensation for this specific sort of loss.
Loss of Income
Sometimes, those who die under wrongful circumstances are the primary or sole earner for their family. Children and spouses left without the income of their deceased loved one may be at risk of falling into temporary or permanent poverty, which the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) notes may lead to:
- Poor health outcomes
- Food insecurity
- Greater exposure to pollution
- Lack of healthcare access
Securing compensation from those responsible for your loved one’s wrongful death may help weather the financial harm of losing a loved one.
Pain and Suffering
Those who have lost a loved one, particularly in an unexpected fashion, understand the great pain that comes from such loss. Your lawyer will assign a monetary value to your pain and suffering, which could be the highest-value loss that one might suffer because of a wrongful death.
