Wrongful Death Lawyers in Riverside
Offering Compassionate & Comprehensive Legal Counsel
Most people understand that not all accidents result in personal injury claims. In the most serious cases, personal injury cases turn into wrongful death lawsuits when an individual passes away due to their injuries. Nothing can truly compensate for the loss of a loved one, but the person or company responsible for the death should be held accountable.
Important Issues in Wrongful Death Claims
There are at least three components related to the statute of limitations when it comes to wrongful death lawsuits in California. In most cases, surviving family members must file a claim within two years of the individual's death to be valid. Once the statute of limitations expires, any case brought to the court may be turned down.
Because these types of cases are extremely complex, it is important that you speak with the Riverside wrongful death attorneys at The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates to help you through the complicated process.

- Lost income due to time away from work during the victim's life
- Lost income that could be expected had the individual lived
- Loss of love, community, moral support, or guidance from the individual
