San Jose Wrongful Death Attorney
As our law firm's practice is focused on the most severe accident cases, we have extensive experience with wrongful death claims on behalf of the surviving families of personal injury victims who eventually died because of their injuries. We work closely with our clients in order to make sure that their immediate, intermediate, and long-term needs are all addressed as we work toward the proof of liability and damages in the case. Just as we do with our personal injury clients, we do everything possible to minimize the burdens of litigation for your family. Our attorneys also understand that every family grieves and adjusts to its loss in its own way, and we do our best to remain responsive to your specific needs as they might arise and change at any given time.
Fatal Accident and Wrongful Death Litigation
Our San Jose personal injury lawyers also work with you in order to determine what a favorable outcome might look like in your wrongful death case. For some families, an important litigation objective will be financial security to replace the loss of support. For other families, especially where the accident victim was a child, a memorial fund or charitable cause might be chosen as the goal. Whatever your family's needs and priorities, we have the experience and skill necessary to serve your interests.
The AV® rated personal injury law firm of Shea & Shea accepts wrongful death cases throughout California, Arizona, Washington, and other western states on a contingent fee basis. Because of the highly complex and technical evidence that is involved in most of our cases, we also advance the expenses of the litigation at our own risk. In other words, we only collect attorneys' fees and recover our expenses only if we win damages on your behalf through settlement or at trial.
