A Trial Lawyer You Can Trust

Death Due To Negligence Is A Double Tragedy

Unfortunately, too many accidents prove fatal. If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by the negligence of another person, you may feel frustrated not only by the death but also by the fact that the tragedy could have been prevented. Although nothing can bring back your loved one, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages through a wrongful death claim that can help ease the financial burden of such a loss.

If you need a Central Valley attorney handling wrongful death cases, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation with our attorney, Derek P. Wisehart. Attorney Wisehart is widely considered one of the Central Valley’s premier trial lawyers not only by his clients but also by his adversaries, his peers, law enforcement officers, and judges and court staff.

The Role Of Insurance In Fatal Accident Cases

Losing a loved one in an accident can be difficult enough without adding the stress and worry about the remaining financially stability.

But it may be possible to recover monetary compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. These benefits can help you pay for medical bills, funeral arrangements and even cope with the financial strain of losing a wage earner in the family.
