We will discuss this fully with you during the free initial consultation so please call us.

The Wrongful Death Case

The laws are very specific: The California Wrongful Death Statute and Survivor Statute expresses that a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought by the survivors of the deceased family member. The Los Angeles California personal injury law firm of DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo has been walking side-by-side with the grieving families and winning for them maximum recovery for over thirty years. The survivors who are eligible by law to bring the suit for wrongful death are the children, the surviving spouse, and the surviving children of any deceased children of the victim. They can file together separately but most families will come together to file jointly. If the wrongful death victim does not have any available relatives who are part of their direct family as listed above, then the victim’s parents, siblings, children of siblings and then their lineal descendants may have a right to bring the wrongful death lawsuit. You can discuss your personal situation with our law firm to see how your case would move forward.

Maximizing Compensation

The Los Angeles, California wrongful death firm of DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo will use its extensive experience and solid reputation throughout the California legal community to maximize the compensation you and/or your family is legally due. Eligible survivors could get compensation for any or all of the following reasons:

  1. The future financial support you and/or the family would have received if it wasn’t for the victim’s wrongful death;
  2. Medical bills that are a result of the victim’s procedures, treatment and injuries;
  3. Burial and funeral expenses;
  4. The loss of “care, comfort and society” which includes monetary compensation for your loss of companionship, moral support, consolation, love, solace, affection, and (if a spouse is a claimant) consortium; and
