Recovering damages in a wrongful death claim for emotional trauma

Losing a loved one is traumatic, but it can be especially difficult for California family if the death was the result of another person's negligence or reckless actions. Wrongful death claims cannot reverse what happened to your family member, but it may be an appropriate step for some grieving families. By successfully navigating a civil claim, you may be able to recover damages for some financial losses, as well as your emotional trauma.

There are always difficult emotions associated with the loss of loved one, but the trauma can extend into many areas of your life. Grief does not go away overnight, and you may find that you must also deal with loss of companionship, loss of income and much more. This is painful and stressful, and it can affect every member of the family, including children. 

Not only could a wrongful death claim hold responsible parties accountable for what happened to your loved one, but it can also help you deal with the unexpected financial losses you experienced. These losses can also be a source of grief, frustration and continued emotional pain. Depending on the nature of your case, you may also be able to recover damages associated with the mental and emotional trauma associated with the accident.

You do not have to suffer through the aftermath of a fatal California accident and the loss of a loved one alone. You may benefit from knowing your potential legal options, including a potential wrongful death claim. By seeking a complete evaluation of your case from an experienced legal professional, you can make the most appropriate choice for your individual situation.
