Losing a loved one because of another's wrongful actions is perhaps one of the most traumatic experiences any family can endure. We at Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn would like to extend our sincere sympathy.

Who can file a wrongful death claim?

In California, certain surviving family members may be eligible to bring a wrongful death claim on their loved one's behalf. These individuals can include a spouse, domestic partner, children of the deceased, or a personal representative of the deceased's estate. You can talk to our wrongful death attorneys to find out if you are eligible to file a claim.

How Can Our San Francisco Wrongful Death Attorneys Help?

There is, of course, no way to place a dollar amount on several of these losses. No amount of money could in any way make your pain go away or make what happened to you and your loved ones right.

By pursuing justice through legal action, however, you can have peace of mind knowing that the individuals responsible have been called to task for their actions. In addition, you will be able to alleviate your family from the unnecessary stress caused by the financial burden this situation has placed on your shoulders.

  • Just a few of the financial damages you could be compensated for in a wrongful death claim include:
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of income/wages
  • Reimbursement for medical bills
  • Reimbursement for funeral/burial expenses

Cases we believe in – People we care about.

Our firm does not charge an upfront hourly fee, and we often front litigation costs as necessary, allowing regular consumers to protect their rights without worrying about further financial strain. There is no reason not to take action in order to protect your rights and your family's well-being after your loss.
