Take Action When Negligence Leads to Tragedy
It only takes a split second for an accident to occur; and all too often, these incidents can cause a life-changing injury or death. A tragedy of this type will seem even more acute when the harm you and your family suffer was caused by avoidable negligence.
The law cannot restore health or restore the life of a lost loved one, but the California legal system does provide those harmed by negligence or malice with legal remedies. Through a claim or lawsuit, you may seek some measure of justice through financial compensation. At Walton Law Group, we vigorously represent our clients who have suffered brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures and the loss of family members.
Legal Support Tailored to Your Personal Injury or Loss of a Loved One
Serious injuries and wrongful death can occur in just about any context. Common causes of injury and death include:
- Motor vehicle accidents: car, truck, motorcycle, bus and motorboat accidents in city streets, on highways, in parking lots and in other settings
- Slip-and-fall accidents on stairs, in hallways, in parking garages, in retail stores, in industrial settings and in other circumstances that may lead to premises liability claims
- Faulty products: toys, tools, appliances, medications, and other dangerous and defective consumer products
- Animal attacks and dog bites resulting in serious harm to children or adults, possibly resulting in scarring, disfigurement and/or permanent nerve damage
Any injury that prevents you from living your life fully may be considered a catastrophic injury. That’s especially true when injuries prevent you from earning a living.
We are prepared to use every legal tool at our disposal to help you obtain just compensation. If you have experienced a catastrophic injury or have suffered the loss of a loved one in an accident, you have a right to hold the responsible party accountable through litigation. After an accidental death, you may file a claim on your deceased loved one’s behalf to cover his or her final medical expenses.
Bring a Wrongful Death Claim After a Fatality
A surviving spouse and/or minor children are eligible to bring wrongful death claims after a fatal accident caused by someone else’s negligence. In other cases, a parent or grandparent may be the plaintiff. If you have lost a close family member in an accident, you may be able to recover compensation for funeral and burial costs, lost income that the person might have earned over a lifetime, and the loss of the person’s companionship and support.
