Los Angeles Lawyers Uphold the Rights of the Bereaved Through Wrongful Death Actions
Dedicated California advocates seek justice and financial compensation for victims’ families
The unexpected death of a loved one devastates surviving family members. When someone else’s negligence or misconduct is to blame for that loss, the pain can be even worse. At The Ruttenberg Law Firm, P.C. in Los Angeles, we represent bereaved family members and estate representatives in litigation to help recover the financial loss triggered by a wrongful death. With more than five decades of combined legal experience, our attorneys understand the many ways that a fatal tragedy can affect survivors for years to come. We pursue full recovery for damages such as lost wages, funeral expenses and the value of household contributions that the victim would have provided. Nothing can ever replace a loved one who died unjustly, but we work tirelessly to deliver some financial relief to those who are left behind.
Established attorneys with the experience to hold liable parties accountable
Our attorneys have brought successful wrongful death actions on behalf of families in a variety of cases, including those arising from:
- Auto accidents — We have earned large verdicts and settlements for the families of people killed in vehicle crashes. No matter how complex the case might be, we will assert your rights with insurers and in court.
- Medical malpractice — Errors by doctors and other healthcare professionals can be very difficult to identify, especially when family members are consumed by grief. Our firm provides comprehensive support and engages the necessary experts to determine if professional standards of care were violated so that we can hold the responsible medical providers accountable.
- Defective products — Slight mistakes in the design, creation and labeling of products can lead to fatal accidents. When a product failure results in an untimely death, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge necessary to confront manufacturers and other potentially responsible parties.
We are committed to delivering cost-effective counsel to each client we represent. Our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to help clients understand the relevant law and maintain open communication until the legal matter is resolved. Most importantly, we understand what a difficult time you’re going through, and we are dedicated to seeking justice for the loss of your loved one while treating you with the compassion you deserve.
