Wrongful Death

The term “wrongful death” is an area of the law in which survivors of anyone killed by some negligent, reckless, or deliberate act can seek restitution. In California the laws surrounding wrongful death claims are especially complex, but often mean significant financial awards given to the survivors. By contacting a lawyer experienced in wrongful death laws, you can begin the road to recovery.

The Law Offices of Jeffrey D. Bohn are skilled in handling wrongful death lawsuits. Because wrongful death claims are usually very emotionally charged cases, our attorneys and staff will provide each client with compassionate and professional service unmatched by any other law firm.

Because Fresno wrongful death lawsuits often involve several factors, they are likely to include various levels of financial compensation available. Loss of wages is an important and legally owed damage, especially in wrongful deaths of the head of a household. Our lawyers will calculate all potentially earned income from the deceased even if they were not working at the time of their death. Other damages can come from pain and suffering, loss of a loved one, medical and funeral expenses, future medical bills and therapy sessions, mental anguish and many others.

California has a strict statute of limitations for filing a Fresno wrongful death lawsuit and you should contact our office immediately if you believe you have a claim. If you file your claim too late, even if the evidence strongly suggests wrongful death, then you may not be able to file a suit.

The Law Office of Jeffrey D. Bohn is here to ensure that you receive your legally entitled benefits as a result of a wrongful death in your family. Please contact us immediately for a consultation.
