Experienced Sacramento and Roseville Wrongful Death Attorney
Compassionate support after a tragic loss
The death of a loved one leaves families with grief, funeral and other expenses and the prospect of lost financial support for the future. When an avoidable negligent or wrongful act caused their loss, the family must also come to terms with its senselessness. While no amount of money can ever replace a loved one lost tragically, wrongful death lawyer Jeffery Davis in Roseville provides the compassionate personal and legal support families need to reduce the financial stress and begin to heal emotionally.
How wrongful death law works
Essentially, wrongful death law places certain financial burdens on parties whose negligent or willful acts caused injuries leading to death. It also defines a detailed hierarchy of family members who qualify to pursue damages for wrongful death, including (but not limited to) the following:
- The surviving spouse or registered domestic partner of the decedent
- Children of the decedent
- Other parties, such as minor children residing in the home, who were dependent on the decedent for support
Experienced wrongful death attorneys in Roseville typically must pursue two separate legal actions on behalf of their clients:
- Survival actions help families pursue the costs of medical treatment and pain and suffering their loved one experienced from the time of injury until his or her death.
- Wrongful death actions pertain specifically to the losses experienced by eligible family members as defined by California statute, such as the loss of financial support and the loss of relationships between the decedent and spouse or children.
