Orange County Wrongful Death Attorney

Did you lose a loved one in a fatal accident?

When one has lost a loved one due to an accident or serious injuries, it is a devastating and emotional loss. The remaining family members have the right to sue for compensation in wrongful death cases when another individual or entity's negligence, recklessness or dangerous actions caused the death of the family member. These cases are usually complex and may end up at trial, and in other cases, a settlement is made prior to trial.
