Modesto Wrongful Death Attorney
The death of a loved one is one of the most traumatic and devastating events a person can face. More than just the deceased are victims. When there is a death of a spouse, simultaneously there is often a child, or children, losing their parent. Many times there are parents or siblings alive who suffer, as well.
When a person is killed through the actions of another, the law requires the responsible person to pay the legal heirs of the deceased for what the law defines as, “the loss of love, society, comfort, care, solace, companionship, and support”. The insurance company for the responsible party is required to pay for these losses. Sadly, even though the death of a person is such a horrible event in the lives of the decedent’s family, insurance companies try to find ways of avoiding their obligation. Insurance companies are used to spending large amounts of money to shirk their obligations; because the primary victim is deceased and cannot testify, these cases can be challenging to litigate.
