What is a wrongful death claim?

Sadly, wrongful death accidents happen every day. Individuals may lose their life in a serious car accident, dangerous workplace accident, or any other type of incident. It may be a result of a defective product or poorly maintained property. Other reasons can also include improper medical treatment or lack of care.

No matter the cause, Attorney Hughes can help you pursue the following:


Funeral and burial costs
Loss of income/household support
Any medical expenses caused by the accident
Loss of benefits
Mental/emotional pain and suffering
Any other damages caused by the accident

If you are a surviving spouse or partner, you may also have the right to pursue damages for loss of relationship and companionship, also known as loss of consortium.

Limited Time to Act

Attorney Hughes understands that you need time to grieve, but the statutes of limitations in California prevent you from filing a claim after just two years from the date of the incident. For this reason, it is extremely important for you to hand your case off to a diligent and reliable legal professional.

A wrongful death case should be about bringing justice and honor to the name of your loved one and securing the support you need to move forward from your tragic loss. You need a lawyer who respects your situation and will do everything they can to help you hold negligent parties responsible.
