Why File a Los Angeles Wrongful Death Claim?

The grief you are feeling over the loss of your loved one is beyond anything you’ve felt before. There seems to be no end in sight, as nothing can bring your beloved family member back to you. Why bother filing a wrongful death claim when it can’t make you feel better? It won’t make the grief go away.

No, nothing can ever fully right this wrong, but there are some good reasons to file a wrongful death claim. For starters, you will be holding the at-fault person accountable for the harm they’ve caused. You will be helping to prevent that person from harming anyone else.

Reasons to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Los Angeles

There are many reasons to file a wrongful death claim in Los Angeles. Read on to learn more about why it may be worth it to file a fatal accident claim.

Justice and Accountability

Some people’s number one reason to file a wrongful death claim is to get their loved one justice. You may not be able to move on unless you know that the person who caused your family member’s death is being held to account for it. They need to learn from their mistakes and be held legally liable for what they did.

They may not have intended to harm your loved one, but their actions resulted in the death of another person. They must be taught that actions have consequences.

Financial Compensation

One benefit to filing a wrongful death claim is to get you and your family the money you need to deal with a death. You are likely trying to come up with the funds to pay for a funeral and burial. You also will have other financial expenses due to your loved one’s death. 

You should not have to pay for any of these expenses. The person who caused the death should be the one to pay for the results of what they’ve done.

Protect Others from Being Hurt or Killed

Another reason to file a wrongful death claim is to protect others from being harmed or killed in the same way or by the same person. Your claim can bring awareness to a dangerous activity or whatever issue brought about your loved one’s death. 

For example, if your loved one died because of a dangerous product, you could bring awareness to the public that the product is dangerous and needs further testing and evaluation.
