If you have recently lost a family member, you are likely struggling with a number of challenges. For example, you may have a great deal of emotional pain, an inability to pay your bills and concerns about your future or the impact your loved one’s death will have on other family members. Unfortunately, many people in San Bernardino and other communities across the state have passed away due to someone’s reckless behavior or a company’s negligence. Every wrongful death claim is unique and it is vital to understand that these cases take a variety of forms.
Sometimes, people lose their lives because of medical professional negligence. For example, if a physician fails to diagnose a health condition that should have been spotted sooner or performs a wrong-site surgery, they should be held responsible for their actions. Sometimes, companies manufacture defective products which leave customers injured or even dead, while other wrongful death cases involve nursing home abuse or car crashes. Moreover, some people lose their lives in on-the-job accidents that are a result of their employer’s carelessness.
Regardless of the nature of a wrongful death claim, those who lose their lives because of reckless behavior deserve justice. Furthermore, by holding negligent drivers, physicians, nursing homes, companies and others accountable, additional deaths and injuries may be prevented. If you are facing these challenges personally and are thinking about taking your case to court, you should take action before the statute of limitations expires.
