Losing a loved one is not something any amount of money can "fix." We know that the deeper cost - the human cost of a wrongful death and its effect on a family are much more difficult to measure. However, we do use our resources to ensure that those losses are compensated as fairly and as fully as possible in every case.

We handle lawsuits involving:

Generally, damages in these fatal accident cases can include compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, property damage and losses of expected income, companionship, support, parental guidance and others, as well as for pain, suffering and grief. Punitive damages may also be awarded in some cases.

When we try a fatal accident case in Ventura, we have expert economists calculate the financial impact of the death on the family. They estimate the value of a spouse's lost earnings as well as non-economic contribution to the home. Similarly, when a surviving family member needs to hire someone to help with child care, grocery shopping, and other daily chores, they are also entitled to compensation for the cost of these services.
