Santa Ana Wrongful Death Car Accident Statistics

One of the most common reasons for hiring a Santa Ana wrongful death lawyer is due to the frequent occurrences of car accidents. The streets of Santa Ana are one of the most dangerous in Orange County.

According to the California Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 11 people were killed as a result of Santa Ana auto collisions. Whether the problem is due to an abnormally high number of unsafe drivers, or the actual streets of Santa Ana are contributing to the high fatality rate is debatable, but those who drive through the area should be particularly cautious.

California has constructed a law that forces negligent parties to compensate for the losses of the deceased surviving family members.

The California wrongful death statute states, “A cause of action for the death of a person caused by the wrongful act or neglect of another may be asserted by any of the following persons or by the decedent’s personal representative on their behalf: The decedent’s surviving spouse, domestic partner, children, and issue of deceased children, or, if there is no surviving issue of the decedent, the persons, including the surviving spouse or domestic partner, who would be entitled to the property of the decedent by intestate succession.

Surviving family members can file for what is known as “Pecuniary Damages”. Pecuniary or monetary damages are defined as financial losses that can be calculated.

This means that if a person loses their life due to a third party’s carelessness, the family or the spouse of the deceased can claim compensation for damages such as:

  • the income that the deceased would have earned in their lifetime
  • funeral bills
  • recovery for companionship

Non-Pecuniary losses are calculated by the pain and suffering of the surviving family members and are difficult to determine. The damages that can be classified as non-pecuniary are emotional anguish, damage to relationships, and being able to perform daily tasks due to a distressed mental state.

Non-Pecuniary losses do not have a set amount and are dependent on various factors.

Elements that are taken into account when deciding the amount of non-pecuniary damages can include the age of the person who is filing the claim and the seriousness of the emotional trauma.

Client Reviews

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!

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.

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.
