The victims of a wrongful death extend out much further than just the person who died. Indeed, the family members and close relatives are also victims. We believe that, in many cases, the family members deserve compensation for their loved one’s death. The law agrees with us: The California Wrongful Death Statutes and Survivor Statutes states that if the death was the result of recklessness, criminal conduct, improper conduct, negligence or the inaction of another person, the survivors should receive monetary damages. All wrongful death cases are unique and they are very hard for the survivors to go through, and our San Bernardino wrongful death lawyers are committed to being with you every step of the way. Since the late 1970s, our law firm has been successfully representing survivors and helping them with the legal process. Wrongful deaths happen every day in this country as a result of an endless list of injuries, situations, and accidents. The most common wrongful death lawsuits in San Bernardino are from:

  • Criminal Conduct and intentional acts such as murder;
  • Product defect liability accidents including car, motorcycle or truck defect, saw defect, machine defect, tire defect, product defect, or equipment malfunction;
  • Motor vehicle accidents including truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, car and auto accidents, boating accidents, rollover accidents and drunk drivers;
  • Work Injuries;
  • Slip and Fall – Premises Liability;
  • Crosswalk, Pedestrian and Bicycle accidents; and
  • Construction Accidents.

We’re On Your Side

Regardless how the wrongful death happened, the passing of a loved one and family member is heartbreaking. We are sure that the last thing you want to worry about is dealing with the legal system.

DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo wrongful death lawyers have been advising, supporting, and winning monetary damages for the grieving survivors for over three decades.

Wrongful Death Cases

The laws are specific: The California Wrongful Death Statute and Survivor Statute express that a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought by the survivors of the deceased family member. The San Bernardino California personal injury law firm of DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo has been standing by the side of the grieving families and winning for them maximum recovery since 1970. The survivors who are eligible by law to bring the suit for wrongful death are the surviving spouse, the children, and the surviving children of any deceased children of the victim. They can file together separately but most families will come together to file jointly. If the wrongful death victim does not have any available relatives who are part of their direct family as listed above, then the victim’s parents, siblings, children of siblings and then their lineal descendants may have a right to bring the wrongful death lawsuit. You can discuss your personal situation with our law firm to see how your case would move forward.
