Wrongful Death Lawyer Serving San Jose and the Bay Area


Helping family members of fatal accident victims killed by the negligence, wrongdoing, or recklessness of others.

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident as the result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, you should not have to deal with all of the consequences alone. Nothing can bring back a family member - but the legal system can require accountability from those responsible and address some of the financial consequences of your loss.

Wrongful death and personal injury cases are difficult and complex. Insurance companies want to limit their exposure or liability when a serious injury or death occurs.  Insurance companies hire attorneys whose job it is to aggressively undermine each aspect of the plaintiff's claim.

Bay Area attorney Geoffrey Nwosu represents families who have lost loved ones in San Jose, Sunnyvale, Milpitas, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Fremont, Oakland, San Francisco and other communities in the surrounding counties.   He has the experience and resources to investigate fatal car accidents, medical malpractice, trucking accidents, construction site accidents and other types of negligence or recklessness leading to wrongful death.


Wrongful death lawsuits and claims can be brought by the spouse or children (and in some cases a parent). In some instances, these claims are filed in order to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided. Other damages that may be recovered include:

  • Expense associated with the death, e.g., medical and funeral
  • Loss of support
  • Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
  • Loss of inheritance from an untimely death
  • Loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection or care suffered by the survivor of the decedent
  • Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others

If you have lost a loved one, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law.
