Wrongful Death Lawyer San Francisco

When you lose a loved one, part of the grieving process involves asking if anything could have been done differently to prevent the death. Sometimes, the answer to this question reveals that someone failed in their duty to your loved one. When that is the case, you should consider consulting a wrongful death lawyer in San Francisco to hold the wrongdoer liable for their actions. If you fail to do so, then in addition to your emotional pain, you would also have to deal with the financial challenges that follow the loss of a loved one, especially when they were the breadwinner. 

Here at Bogaards Law, we understand how challenging this time is for you, so we work with you with the necessary tact, empathy, and diligence. While you can never get your loved one back, compensation recoverable from a wrongful death action can ease the financial burden you face due to the death of your loved one.

Who Can be Liable for a Wrongful Death in California?

Sometimes, deaths that seemingly stem from natural causes are upon further investigation revealed to have been caused by the negligent or intentional actions of others.  Talking to an attorney may help you gain more understanding as to whether the law considers the action or omission of another to have caused or contributed to the death of your loved one. 

At Bogaards Law, we have successfully obtained monetary compensation for various clients in their wrongful death claims against a utility company, an assisted living facility, and an automobile driver.  We can help you bring wrongful death action against any party, including the following: 

  • Nursing Homes that fail to maintain a safe environment or neglect to administer medications to a resident 
  • Medical doctors for failure to properly diagnose or treat a patient 
  • Utility companies whose negligent action cause fires or gas line explosions 
  • Drivers who cause a crash leading to death 
  • Property owners who fail to maintain safe premises
  • Manufacturers of products whose products cause death, whether they were negligent or not 
  • Employers for workplace accident fatalities etc. 

In some cases, multiple parties may be liable, potentially increasing the amount recoverable. For example, if industrial equipment malfunctions in a workplace causing death, both the employer and the equipment manufacturer may be jointly responsible. Without the assistance of an experienced attorney, you may accept less than the amount you are entitled to. 

It is important you talk to a wrongful death attorney to consider your options because sometimes, a party who is not the direct cause of death may nevertheless be held liable in a wrongful death action in San Francisco. For example, a grocery store in a high-crime area can be held liable for a crime committed by a third party in its parking lot. If we represent you, we work diligently to ensure you get fair compensation from any party that may be responsible in some way for the death of your loved one.
