Accidental Deaths in Hollister
Every day, we read in the news that a random accident has resulted in the death of an innocent victim. The incident could involve a drunk driver, a workplace accident, a construction accident, a misdiagnosis or a dangerous product. While we hear about these accidental accidents all too often, they take on a whole new meaning when they involve the death of a loved one. If you have suffered such a loss, the attorneys at The Grunsky Law Firm PC in Hollister can help. Our lawyers have extensive experience in handling accidental death litigation claims for clients whose loved ones died because of the negligent or reckless actions of another.
While no amount of money can ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, an accidental death attorney can protect the rights of the victim’s spouse, children, parents or other loved ones. In California, when a party is found negligent in the death of an individual, several different types of damages may be recovered, including:
• Loss of income and future earnings.
• Loss of benefits, such as retirement and pension.
• Loss of insurance coverage.
• Medical costs and funeral expenses.
• Loss of companionship and affection.
• Pain and suffering.
It is also important to know that California has statutes of limitations which limit the time for filing personal injury and wrongful death actions. Knowing these restrictive deadlines is critical to protecting any rights you and your family have for compensation from the accidental death. That is why, even at this difficult time, it is important to contact an experienced accident injury law firm. Grunsky, Ebey, Farrar & Howell, also known as The Grunsky Law Firm PC can properly evaluate your case and advise you on how to proceed. We understand the emotional and stressful position you are in and we are here to help.
