Why You Should Consider A Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult situations a person can face. When a loved one's passing occurred because of someone else's negligence, it can be even harder to accept and move on.

If you are mourning a loved one, we are so sorry for your loss. At a time like this, it may be difficult to consider legal action. While people heal in different ways, at Curd, Galindo & Smith, LLP, we have seen many families and individuals in Long Beach and the surrounding areas of California find closure through the process of pursuing a wrongful death claim.

How A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Can Help You And Others

A wrongful death lawsuit can be a very personal pursuit for those who have lost someone through another's negligence. While some motives are personal in nature, there are many reasons to consider seeking compensation through a wrongful death claim after an accident.

Protect others from the same problem. When someone dies because of a dangerous or defective product, a dangerous roadway or another issue, a wrongful death lawsuit can help correct the problem. Taking a defective product off the market or installing a new guardrail on a dangerous road can help ensure that what happened to your loved one never happens to anyone else.

Hold those responsible accountable. A wrongful death lawsuit is also an effective way to hold a negligent party accountable for their actions. By forcing them to own up to their actions — and potentially pay monetary damages — you can seek justice for your loved one.

Find closure for yourself and your family. It is difficult to move on from the death of a loved one when their death was caused by negligence. A successful wrongful death lawsuit helps many people find peace knowing that they achieved justice for their loved one.

Avoid financial challenges. Few people realize the financial impact of a loved one's death until they are faced with it themselves. Whether your loved one was the primary wage earner in your family or you are now facing exorbitant medical bills and funeral expenses, a death can be costly. A wrongful death lawsuit allows you to seek both compensation and closure.
