Damages and Eligibility

You may be eligible to recover financial compensation if a loved one was killed as a result of another party's negligence. Plaintiffs in a wrongful death case can typically file suit for damages relating to medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of wages, loss of future income, and emotional pain and suffering. If it can be shown that the defendant was woefully negligent, it may also be possible to file for punitive damages, which are monies rewarded to punish the defendant. This may be particularly appropriate in the case of a premises liability or product liability claim, as such damages would help ensure that actions were taken by the defendant to prevent such an accident from occurring in the future.

At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley - located in Chico, Roseville, Sacramento, Redding, and Yuba City - our wrongful death attorneys appreciate how great an impact a wrongful death can have on a family. You can rest assured that we will do everything in our power to help ensure you obtain thebest possible recovery.

Establishing Liability

A successful legal outcome is dependent on first determining fault and establishing beyond doubt liability for damages. If the decedent was killed as the result of another individual's actions, then it may be possible to recover damages through his or her insurance coverage or own assets. If the liable party is a third party, such as a manufacturer or property owner, we have the resources, experience, expertise, and drive to go after such defendants. To establish liability, we work with a team of experts in a variety of fields. Among the experts we work with include specialists in engineering, including biomechanical engineering, forensics, physics, medicine, economics, and psychology. Common causes of wrongful death include:

In addition to consulting with experts to determine fault, our team is also led by Mr. Larry S. Buckley. His scientific background and analytical approach to litigation makes him uniquely capable of determining fault and representing your interests.

Victims' Rights

Family members of the deceased have rights. In wrongful death cases, spouses and children of the decedent are typically able to bring a claim against the party responsible for his or her death. If no spouses or children exist, then other family members may be eligible to file suit, including parents and siblings. Additionally, individuals who could reasonably expect to have been listed as recipients in the decedent's Will if the decedent had not died unexpectedly before having the opportunity to create such a document may also be eligible for financial compensation. If you believe that you have a legal right to compensation for the death of a loved one, let us help.
