While there are many types of wrongful death cases, such as those which involve medical malpractice or a defective product, fatal auto accidents caused by someone’s negligent behavior are especially prevalent in San Bernardino, and the rest of California. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our law firm recognizes the many challenges that families frequently exprience after they have lost a loved one because of someone’s careless behavior.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 35,390 people passed away in a motor vehicle accident during 2014. Although some of these fatalities only involved a single vehicle, many were the result of another driver’s negligence. For example, many reckless drivers have caused deadly traffic crashes because they chose to operate a vehicle while intoxicated or travel at dangerously high speeds.

Losing loved ones can be incredibly painful and may create a plethora of challenges, from financial woes to certain elements of life being turned completely upside down.
