We help 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.
Cases involving personal injury, severe injury, and wrong death can be complicated and challenging. Most if not all insurance companies will want to do their best to reduce their responsibilities when a death or serious injury 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.
From the very first time you come to our firm, you will deal directly with attorney Geoffrey Nwosu, not a case manager or paralegal. We provide hands-on representation, tailored to the needs of each client and the circumstances of each case. In order to understand your goals and what you want, we will work with you every step of the way. We can effectively represent you to hold the responsible party accountable for your loss, protect your financial future, or anything else you may need to accomplish legally.
Our legal representation in wrongful death cases always begins with a complete investigation into the causes of the fatality. Insurance companies will use every available tactic to avoid paying your full and fair compensation – to counter this we ensure that we are as prepared as possible with your strongest arguments, whether attorney Nwosu is at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
We cover all of the costs involved in investigating and developing your case to win at trial. Additionally, we handle all wrongful death representation on a contingency fee basis – if you do not receive money for your claim, you do not pay us attorney’s fees. If you lost a loved one due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing of another, call attorney Geoffrey Nwosu for a free consultation at 408-912-5983.
