Losing a loved one is perhaps the most painful period of a personís life. It is usually a time when the surviving family members become fraught with feelings of grief, uncertainty, and helplessness. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Michael Sabongui understand the emotional and financial strains resulting from the death of a cherished family member or companion. In these challenging times, it is imperative to have experienced, aggressive and compassionate legal counsel to help you deal with your attending needs after the wrongful death of a loved one. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligent, reckless, or wrongful actions of another, you may be entitled to compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. The most common causes of wrongful death claims are car and truck accidents, motorcycle crashes, drunk drivers, medical malpractice, defective products, construction defects, shootings, and intentional assaults.

In California, the amount of damages that a wrongful death lawyer can obtain for your family depends on many factors. These factors include the age and health of the victim and heirs; the life expectancy of the deceased and heirs; the amount of financial loss suffered by both the deceased and heirs; the available insurance coverage; the assets of the negligent party; the financial circumstances of the surviving heirs prior to the victim's death; number of surviving family members including parents, spouse, children and siblings.

At the Law Offices of Michael Sabongui we help people get compensation and hold the responsible parties accountable. You cannot get back what you have lost, but you can obtain compensation to make things easier for you, and your family, as you move forward. We are committed to guiding you through the process with the highest degree of skill and professionalism, as well as an equally high level of sensitivity. However, the time to file a wrongful death case is limited. We strongly urge you to consult with an experienced attorney at your first opportunity as the nature and circumstances surrounding the loss of your loved one may significantly impact the time within which you may file a case.

If you have lost a loved one from the wrongful act or failure to act of another, please contact the Law Offices of Michael Sabongui for a free consultation and evaluation.
