What is a Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death involves a person losing their life due to someone else’s negligence. Wrongful death is categorized as a type of civil lawsuit and can be filed by the surviving family members of the deceased. In order for a loved one to obtain some kind of compensation, there are three factors that must be present to show fault.

Those three factors include:

  • Duty
  • Breach of duty
  • Causation

Family members may be left with medical expenses, funeral costs, and other financial losses such as lost income and benefits. An experienced wrongful death lawyer can help you better understand your legal rights and options, especially if your loved one was killed by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. But selecting the right attorney to handle your wrongful death case can be a challenge in itself.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Buena Park?

The people who can file a wrongful death claim can include a surviving spouse, partner, or the children of the deceased. Parents of the deceased can also file a wrongful death claim.

Other parties may also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Buena Park, but it will depend entirely on the circumstances of your specific case. Contact Bisnar Chase today to find out if you could make a claim for a lost loved one.

If Your Loved One Was Killed in a Car Crash...

A huge number of car accidents in the United States result in fatalities. About 38,000 people die in car accidents across the U.S. annually, including more than 3,600 in California. A large number of those are caused by the negligence of others and could be subject to a wrongful death lawsuit.

Statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that over one million drivers were arrested for impaired driving over the course of a single year. Impaired driving does not just encompass alcohol but it can include marijuana. Data has also shown that 10,497 died due to drivers operating a motor vehicle under the influence.

This is just one form of negligent action that can result in fatal crashes on the roads in and around Buena Park, and all across California. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, contact Bisnar Chase to find out what your next steps should be.

Questions to Keep in Mind When Seeking Legal Representation

Having the right attorney can greatly increase your chances of receiving fair compensation for your losses. How do you know if an attorney is right for you? What questions should you ask?

  • Does the law firm have a recent history of handling cases similar to yours?
  • Does the specific attorney you are speaking with have experience handling your type of wrongful death claim? Do not rely just on the track record of the law firm.
  • Is the law firm financially stable enough to afford expert witnesses and other expenses that may arise during the process of handling your case?
  • Is the attorney interested in a quick settlement or does the attorney plan to fight for the largest possible settlement in court? Find an attorney who fits your requirements and needs.
  • There are many types of wrongful death accidents including medical malpractice, fatal car accidents, and defective product accidents. Does the attorney with whom you are meeting have a proven track record with your specific type of case? For example, if your loved one died as the result of a defective seatbelt, does the attorney with whom you are meeting have prior experience handling seatbelt defect cases?
  • As obvious as it may sound, it is important you actually like your attorney. Wrongful death cases are sensitive and you deserve an attorney who will support you and treat you with care, respect, and understanding.
  • Does your attorney plan on including you during the process? Depending on your preference, it may be in your best interest to retain an attorney who will discuss your options with you before making a decision on your behalf.
  • What is the law firm’s policy on returning phone calls? The law firm should commit to promptly returning your phone calls and giving you regular updates about your case.
  • Does the attorney want money up front? The most reputed attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they do not get paid until you win your case.

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.

Bisnar Chase Google Review

I had an attorney for my truck accident who wanted almost 60% of what my case was worth. Worse than that, he was willing to settle for $5,000.00 with the insurance company even though I was still treating for whiplash and back pain. I contacted Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys because a friend recommended them. My case was handled exceptionally well! I was being kept notified throughout the whole process and only when I was comfortable with the settlement figure, did my attorney Gavin Long, accept it. I felt like we were working together and I felt listened to. I would refer Bisnar Chase to anyone who wants quality over quantity!

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.
