The Dedicated Wrongful Death Counsel You Need
A wrongful death lawsuit is not about putting a value on a person’s life. Rather, it is about the personal loss and economic loss suffered by the survivors. These are intangible or irrefutable concepts that require extensive documentation. You need a lawyer who knows what kind of evidence will get the attention of the insurance companies.
The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser represents family members who have lost a loved one through the negligence of others such as a motor vehicle accident. Our attorney has litigated both sides of wrongful death cases, as a plaintiff’s attorney and in his former capacity as an insurance defense lawyer. We use that experience to maximize compensation for families adjusting to an untimely death.
Our Palm Springs, California law firm serves the Coachella Valley, Palm Desert, Cathedral City, the High Desert and families throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Call us for a free consultation.
What Can Families Be Compensated For?
Michael Kaiser spent many years as a lawyer for the insurance industry. He knows what constitutes proof of wrongful death, and he knows how insurers evaluate cases and what elements of damages they focus on.
Monetary damages for a deadly accident may include:
- Loss of projected income if the deceased was a wage earner
- Loss of love, companionship, support and advice
- Loss of consortium (marital relations)
- Loss of household services (chores, parenting, baby-sitting, etc.)
- Medical costs or other damages prior to death
We demonstrate the value of the relationship by learning about the family and the person’s contributions to the family. We use photos, videos, and testimony of friends and family to paint a full picture of all the tangible ways the person is missed. For example, in a recent significant settlement, we represented the daughter and only heir of a 91-year-old man who was run over by a truck. Although he was well past his earning years, we focused on the closeness of the relationship and evidence that he was expected to live several more years.
