Spouses, parents, children and siblings of those who died are the typical parties to file a wrongful death lawsuit. They are also considered distributees in a lawsuit, which means they receive the compensation for the suit. Some common examples of a wrongful death may include fatal medication errors, failing to provide care for a dependent person and similar incidents. If you think your loved one died because of another person’s negligence, a wrongful death attorney in Bakersfield can help you determine this. Often, a wrongful death lawsuit is the only option for adequate compensation.
A Bakersfield accidental death attorney can help you learn how much money to expect. Every situation is different. For example, a couple whose child dies because of a surgical error may not receive as much compensation as a husband whose wife dies and leaves him with several children to care for. In this case, the husband could seek compensation for the lost income of his wife. If she stayed at home to care for the children, he could seek compensation for future child care and housekeeping services. Since each case varies in the cause of death and the effects the death has on survivors, you should discuss your case with our Bakersfield wrongful death lawyers now.
