Losing a loved one because of the negligence of a third party is devastating, and the last thing that a family may be thinking about when such a tragedy occurs is filing a claim for damages. However, under California law, certain survivors may be entitled to recover damages from such tragic occurrences. Those damages may include financial support to replace the support provided by the deceased, funeral and burial expenses, loss of gifts and benefits, and emotional damages from loss of comfort and society. Having an experienced and caring attorney during such difficult times is important. Attorney Joseph Y. Avrahamy has experience litigating wrongful death cases in both State and Federal Court.
