Some of the injury cases our law firm handles involve a death caused by a negligent party. If a person has died in an accident, the loved ones of the deceased are likely entitled to compensation for their tragic loss. You will need the assistance of an experienced Montebello wrongful death attorney. The lawyers at Mendez & Sanchez fight for accident and injury victims and their families everyday. They may be able to help you receive compensation for your loss.

A wrongful death is where the negligence or recklessness of an individual or company are responsible for a fatality. The law in California recognizes that when one person's actions cost another his or her life, the responsible person needs to be legally liable to pay damages to the victim's family members. This means that when a family member dies in an accident, the surviving family members might be entitled to bring a civil case against those responsible for the accident.

Common Kinds of Cases that Result In Wrongful Death

Some of the most common kinds of cases that result in wrongful death are car accidents, slips and falls, workplace accidents, and medical malpractice.

When an Automobile Accident Causes Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one to a car accident is devastating. And it can be emotionally challenging to consider what you need to do next when you are so early in the grieving process. However, some people report that filing a claim helped to give them peace of mind because they had one less thing to worry about. A wrongful death claim means that something is being done to get justice for a deceased loved one.

A motor vehicle accident that causes a wrongful death can leave a family with major stress and anxiety regarding repaying medical costs, handling funeral costs, and losing earnings from a primary provider. Mendez & Sanchez can help to ensure that you obtain the compensation that you deserve for medical expenses, lost income, loss of consortium, as well as pain and suffering.

Wrongful death due to a car accident can occur at the scene of the accident or later on when the victim succumbs to their injuries. Although deadly automobile accidents are often caused by intoxicated drivers, distracted drivers, and speeding, practically any kind of motor vehicle accident can lead to a fatal wreck. Some of the most common injuries from automobile accidents that later lead to wrongful death are traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and internal injuries. If your loved one dies from complications because of their injury, it still falls under the umbrella of wrongful death. Therefore, the at-fault party can still be sued for their negligence.

Wrongful Death Because Of Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are rarely considered a fatal kind of accident. However, this is just not accurate. Slips and falls can be fatal, particularly if the head strikes the ground or another hard surface.

Slips and falls can occur almost anywhere. But some of the most prevalent locations where slip and falls occur that qualify as wrongful deaths are grocery stores, commercial businesses, apartment complexes, parking lots, and places of work. The way your wrongful death case will be sought is different depending on where the accident occurred. For example, claims against big commercial companies differ in their parameters and insurance policies compared to slip and fall deaths that take place at a private residence.

Slips and falls can also be fatal when they happen to a senior citizen. A slip and fall can put major pressure on an older person that they may never recuperate from. When you are in the later stages of life and all of a sudden you need to be bedridden for an extended period of time, your chances of recovering completely are much slimmer. As a matter of fact, falls are the leading source of injury-related death for adults aged 65 and older. And this number seems to be increasing.

Workplace Wrongful Death

Workplace accidents that most commonly lead to fatalities include:

In these situations, determining if there is any third-party liability for negligence depends on how the accident occurred. If your loved one passed away because of negligent conduct of an employee from a different company, that employee or that other company can be held liable for damages. But, generally if a death or injury occurs at the workplace or while the worker is "on the clock", the case would fall under workers' compensation.

Wrongful Death Because of Medical Malpractice

Wrongful death because of medical malpractice is one of the more difficult case types in personal injury law. Because of this, you want to be sure you have a competent lawyer on your side when you're dealing with medical malpractice of any kind.

Medical malpractice that can result in a wrongful death includes:
