Individuals and families in California and across the rest of the country sometimes suffer the cruelest of fates, namely, the wrongful death of a loved one.
Of course, we all consistently take measures to protect ourselves and those we love against every potential risk and danger, but sometimes life just intervenes in unexpected and calloused ways.
And the catalyst for such intervention is often third-party negligence, which simply cannot be guarded against in any foolproof way.
Our readers across Southern California know well that reckless, inattentive and sometimes wanton behavior can yield truly outsized and tragic effects when it is on display on state streets and highways. In fact, wrongful death outcomes are often linked with negligent driving behaviors.
The attorneys at the long-tenured Santa Monica personal injury law firm of Randolph & Associates (with offices in additional locales) provide diligent and empathetic advocacy on behalf of surviving family members pursuing wrongful death claims against negligent third parties whose behavior centrally played a role in a loved one's fatality.
And we do so with this acknowledgment: We know that clients are grieving in a deep way, and we know equally well that no legal remedy can suffice to make them whole in the wake of a family member's death.
Having said that, though, we also know that a maximum and meaningful negligence-related money recovery is often of tremendous importance to a family, in that it can promote peace of mind, aid closure and help secure financial security for future needs.
Our attorneys are duly sensitive to family emotions and priorities when unexpected tragedy enters their lives. As we note on our legal website, we make painstaking efforts to represent clients "with sensitivity and discretion" in wrongful death cases.
We welcome readers' perusal of our blog, and are of course privileged to respond to your questions and feedback.
