No one can undo the pain caused by the death of a loved one. A wrongful death that is the loss of life caused by someone else’s negligence, can make that loss even more profound. Wrongful death also entails loss or damage to surviving family members, such as emotional pain and suffering, economic losses, funeral expenses or medical bills. The wrongful death lawyers and staff of Abeyta Nelson Injury Law stand ready to provide support, advocacy, and legal advice for our clients and their family members during this difficult time.


What are Examples of a Wrongful Death Case?

Wrongful death personal injury cases occur when a person dies due to the fault or wrongful act of another responsible party, company, or government entity. These deaths may occur as a result of car accidents, truck accidents, on-the-job injuries, including falls on construction sites, farming accidents, dangerous or defective products, drowning, or other fatal accidents. A wrongful death claim may be filed for recovery of the decedent’s medical expenses, funeral expenses, and burial expenses – costs usually not covered by your insurance company. In most other cases, a surviving spouse and children may be entitled for compensation for other types of damages including loss of companionship, past and future financial losses, and emotional pain and suffering. When there is no surviving spouse or children, parents and siblings may be entitled fo financial compensation.

While there is no way to bring back a loved one, our personal injury attorneys obtain the fair financial support and compensation our clients deserve for having lost someone precious.
