Wrongful Death

If you have lost a loved one, the Metzger Law Group can help.  The firm litigates wrongful death cases for spouses, children, and parents of workers and others who die from their injuries.

The firm has been successful in many wrongful death cases, obtaining substantial compensation for those who have lost their loved ones.  About one-fourth of the firm’s cases involve wrongful death and survival claims.

A wrongful death claim is a claim brought by the surviving spouse, children, or parents of an injured person who dies.  In California, the survivors are entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved ones from those wrongfully causing the death of their loved ones.

In California, compensation is available for lost financial support as well as for the loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, and moral support.  Spouses are also entitled to compensation for loss of the enjoyment of sexual relations, and children are entitled to compensation for the loss of training and guidance from their deceased parent.

It is a sad, but unfortunate fact that many toxic injuries are so serious that they result in death.  Since the firm’s practice is concentrated on toxic injury cases, many of the firm’s cases are, unfortunately, wrongful death cases.
