Loved One Killed in Fatal Car Accident?

There are hundreds of thousands of motor vehicle accidentsthroughout California every year. Many are minor collisions that cause little harm while others involve catastrophic injuries and damage. A fatal car accident, however, dramatically alters the lives not just of the parties involved but also the families of the deceased. The Santa Rosa injury lawyers at Edgar Law Firm represent the families of fatal car accident victims throughout Northern California, including Napa, Petaluma and Novato. If you lost your spouse, child, parent or other family member in a fatal car accident, it is important for you to fully understand all of your legal options.

Wrongful Death Damages

If your loved one was killed as a result of another party's negligence, our Santa Rosa injury attorneys can file a wrongful death lawsuit that may provide such compensation as:

  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Loss of Expected Earnings
  • Loss of Inheritance
  • Loss of Services
  • Loss of Support
  • Loss of Society and Companionship
  • Medical Bills
  • Mental Anguish
  • Pain and Suffering

It is also possible that certain wrongful death cases could result in punitive damages if the court finds that the negligent party's behavior was particularly egregious and merits a significant financial punishment to deter others from engaging in similar conduct. Fatal car accident causes include:

  • Distracted Driving
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Other Drugs
  • Mechanical Issues or Design Defects
  • Reckless Driving
  • Speeding

Fatal car accident claims can involve several insurance companies, and our Santa Rosa injury lawyers can negotiate with them on your behalf. It is possible that you may be entitled to compensation from the deceased victim's car insurance, the negligent driver's car insurance and the health insurance of survivors. Our Santa Rosa injury attorneys can investigate your case and pursue all available avenues of compensation.
