Wrongful Death Attorney in San Diego

The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person can go through. The aftermath can be a complex maze of legalities and emotions, but Lee Law Group is here to guide and support victims’ families through this difficult time.

When a death is caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, the family of the deceased may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death is defined as the death of a person caused by the wrongful act or negligence of another person. The wrongful act or negligence can be intentional or unintentional.

Examples of wrongful death cases include:

  • A car accident caused by another driver’s recklessness.
  • Medical malpractice leading to a patient’s death.
  • Defective products resulting in fatal injuries.

In order to file a wrongful death lawsuit, the following requirements must be met:

  • The death must have been caused by the wrongful act or negligence of another person.
  • The deceased must have had a valid life expectancy.
  • The plaintiff must have suffered damages as a result of the death.

The process of filing a wrongful death lawsuit varies from state to state, but the following steps are generally involved:

  • File a complaint with the court. The complaint is a legal document that outlines the facts of the case and the damages that the plaintiff is seeking.
  • Exchange information with the defendant. This is known as discovery and may involve depositions, interrogatories, and document production.
  • Attempt to reach a settlement with the defendant.
  • Go to trial if a settlement cannot be reached. A judge or jury will decide the case and award damages to the plaintiff if they are successful.
