Summer is upon us and it is the time of year that many people are choosing to spend their free time and weekends heading down to a nearby beach, lake or river. For many residents of California's Imperial, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, the Colorado River is the destination of choice for getting out on the water and relaxing with loved ones. Tragically, every year there are individuals who will never return from that day on the river. Increased river traffic means a seasonal rise in boating and other water-related fatalities.
At Randolph and Associates, we know that there is truly nothing that can be done to make up for the death of a loved one, especially when his or her life is lost due to the negligence of another. But even in the face of such devastating loss, we believe that losing a family member should not mean also losing one's financial security.
Like many bodies of water, the Colorado River becomes more dangerous in summer months. As higher numbers of visitors increase congestion on the river, navigation becomes more difficult and the "party atmosphere" fostered there often results in distracted behavior and higher risk of injury or fatality. In the event of a wrongful death, litigation surrounding such an event is innately a painful emotional process. We understand through our years of experience guiding families through wrongful death cases how important it is that these matters are handled discreetly and sensitively, allowing everyone affected to both grieve appropriately and have his or her rights protected.
If you are facing the daunting reality of walking through a wrongful death suit for the loss of a loved one, you are entitled to professional, experienced legal representation who understand the delicacy of your situation. We will work diligently and respectfully behind the scenes to allow you to grieve and also to pursue the best possible settlement for your loss.
