The loss of a family member is devastating, and when someone’s careless behavior causes that death, the pain can feel even more overwhelming. In these types of wrongful death cases, the law allows the victim’s family to pursue and collect damages for the loved one’s lost financial benefits and monetary amount reasonably to be expected had the loss not occurred as well as the monetary equivalent of the loss of comfort and protection for family members that have suffered as a result of the death.
Unlike wrongful death claims, survival actions can be brought for the suffering endured by the person who subsequently dies after being carelessly injured. These claims allow for punitive damages if there is clear and convincing evidence that the at-fault party is guilty of oppression, fraud, or malice in causing the injuries which were sustained.
The skilled personal injury attorneys at BLG have proven success in some of the most high-profile, public wrongful death cases. They have the experience and resources to obtain fair and reasonable compensation for the surviving family members who have suffered emotional and/or financial consequences due to a loved one’s wrongful death.
When the mother and breadwinner of a family was killed in a horrific accident, and the insurance companies refused to settle for fair compensation likely because of the family’s ethnicity and lower-income status, Boesch went to trial and obtained the largest Judgment in California history for non-economic loss. The insurance companies complained that the judgment should be overturned, but the judgment was affirmed, and Boesch collected the full amount, and the court-appointed Boesch as the guardian of the estate to protect the children’s funds.
