Wrongful Death

Fatal accidents often overwhelm surviving family members with feelings of pain, grief and loss. The last thing on most families' minds is the effect the loss of a loved one will have on their financial security. The harsh reality is that without the deceased's income and benefits, it may be hard to make ends meet.

At Bird & Van Dyke, we can't take away your pain, but we can make sure you have the financial resources you need to pay your bills and support your family. From our offices in Stockton and Tracy, our personal injury lawyers help clients throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley obtain compensation through wrongful death claims.

Help After A Fatal Accident

You can't put a price on a human life and no amount of money will make up for the loss of your loved one. However, financial compensation can help ease the financial strain your family may be feeling after a fatal accident.

At Bird & Van Dyke, we help surviving spouses and children bring wrongful death claims and obtain the financial recovery for their loss. Compensation often includes reimbursement for the following:

  • Lost wages the deceased would have earned over his or her expected lifetime
  • The value of benefits provided by the deceased
  • The cost of funeral arrangements
  • Any medical bills incurred by the deceased before his or her death
  • Compensation for the loss of emotional support and love
