You will need a strong, skilled, and empathetic California wrongful death attorney advocate to represent your interests. Immediately. Facts must be investigated and evidence must be preserved.

Our conscientious team of California personal injury attorneys is very experienced in handling the toughest issues in California wrongful death litigation. Our wrongful death attorneys seek to compensate the accidental death victim’s surviving family members and dependents for their financial losses as well as for the loss of services and companionship of the decedent. Negligent death recovery may also include medical costs and funeral expenses. Punitive damages for death by negligence may also be imposed if the victim’s wrongful death was due to the intentional, malicious, reckless, or wanton conduct of some one, or some company. In the event that the death of your loved one was due to malicious intentional criminal behavior, (death by murder, homicide, or manslaughter) it is possible to seek economic compensation for your losses in civil court from the perpetrators or perpetrator defendants, in addition to the criminal prosecution conducted against the defendant (s) by the district attorney.

Under California wrongful death statutes and laws, only the heirs and dependents of the deceased are authorized to seek damages for the wrongful death of the decedent. A claimant in a California wrongful death lawsuit may seek compensation for the loss of love, companionship, and moral support of the decedent, as well as the financial support and household services which the claimant would have received but for the negligent, accidental, or homicidal death of the victim. Negligence is the most common basis for California wrongful death lawsuits.

By their very nature, California wrongful death law suits can be very contentious, emotional, and complex, and require the experience and expertise of a solid proven team of California wrongful death attorneys and counselors. At Picozzi, Nielsen, & Lloyd, we are that team.
