What do you do if you have had the misfortune of having a wrongful death claim here in Ventura County? First of all, most people want to know what exactly a wrongful death is. Quite simply, that means that someone else was negligent. That they failed to follow the rules of the road, or standard company safety rules, or for some other reason was negligent, and they caused the death of your family member or loved one. What do you need to know to be able to protect yourself and your family if a loved one or family member has been killed by somebody else’s negligence here in Ventura County?

These are very complicated cases. Typically, the insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid their responsibility. Most wrongful death claims will end up in litigation. You will need to have a skilled and experienced trial lawyer on your side who is able to collect the evidence, build a foundation for your claim, and be able to take that claim into court if necessary. Until the insurance companies know that, you will never receive the full and fair compensation that you’re entitled to due to the loss of your loved one or family member.
