When you are injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering. But what are your rights when someone you love is killed in a car accident? If the car accident that took your loved one’s life was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
In the state of California, family members may be able to seek justice through legal action following car accidents. This most often includes spouses and children, parents, and siblings, but others may be entitled to take action as well. The best way to determine if you have cause to file suit is through a one-on-one consultation with California personal injury lawyer Mickey Fine.

Seeking Justice for Families
When you lose a loved one in a car accident, finances are probably not the most pressing issue on your mind. However, practical considerations do need to be made to ensure the future safety and comfort of your family.

- End of life and funeral expenses
- Projected future wages
- Projected future financial contributions
- Loss of insurance and retirement
