How much is your Los Angeles wrongful death case worth? For starters, we are so sorry that you are having to research this important question and for the loss you are dealing with. If you have lost a loved one because of the negligence of someone or something else, you should absolutely consider filing a Los Angeles wrongful death case with Walch Law. The money you can get from a successful wrongful death settlement or trial can greatly help ease the financial loss of your loved one and provide a sense of justice in the wake of a senseless death.
How much is my Los Angeles wrongful death case worth?
This is an extremely important question and one that cannot be accurately answered until you hire us and we evaluate the specific facts of your case but here are some important factors that determine the worth of your case:
- Insurance policy limits: Especially when dealing with a Los Angeles wrongful death car accident, the insurance policy limits of the other party and the deceased often dictate how much money you will actually get following the death. These limits can be high or low but something we seek to get the absolute limit of and then look into whether there are other options. For instance, we will exhaust the defendant's limits then go after that of the deceased and these can amount to a few hundred thousand dollars to much more.
- Punitive damages: Can you get punitive damages in a wrongful death case? Yes you can but they have to be warranted. What that means is that you are not going to get punitive damages in most cases but when they are available (when the defendant's behavior was particularly bad) they are often in the millions.
- Multiple defendants: cases that involve multiple defendants are often worth more for the sole reason that it means more parties to pay for the deadly Los Angeles accident. You can essentially sue all of the responsible parties and typically these cases involve at least one defendant with deep pockets to pay a large judgment. For instance, a car accident that involves a truck and another car will be worth a lot if the trucking company is solvent with high insurance policy limits (they are usually required to carry in the millions) and you will also be recovering from the car driver as well.
- Victim: Loss of income, companionship and so much more are factors taken into account that also dictate the worth of a Los Angeles wrongful death case. For instance, a father of three with a job is going to be a huge economic loss to a family that is easy to show earnings, etc. Every life is worth a lot and we work hard to show that.
The reality of Los Angeles wrongful death cases is this-- they are all worth a lot of money but not all of them will be able to collect a large amount because of who the defendant is. At Walch Law, we are the team of lawyers you want as your Los Angeles wrongful death attorney. We can take on the biggest defendants and maximize your recovery in the wake of the loss of your loved one. Do not take any settlement offer before talking to us and do not hesitate to get in touch as the statute of limitations on these cases is very strict. We are available 24/7, call us now.
