Wrongful Death of a Child
The loss of a child is a devastating experience that no parent should have to go through. For parents, there is no amount of money that can compensate for the tremendous loss and grief they are experiencing. However, it is important that the party that caused a child's death be held completely responsible. With the utmost commitment, the Law Offices of Michael Cordova will assume the responsibility to assist families through this difficult time and will prepare the strongest possible case against the negligent party.
After suffering the loss of a child, it is important that parents save all items of sentimental value related to their child. These items include family photos, videos, baptismal certificates, birthday cards, letters, and diplomas. These are the types of items that our Wrongful Death Lawyers use to help demonstrate to the insurance company and, if necessary, the jury the tremendous loss that your family has suffered.
Varying Wrongful Death Factors
Wrongful death cases have different factors if the death of a loved one is a child instead of an adult. When the court determines compensation, age and life expectancy are vitally important. It can be easier to determine future earnings for an adult, who has had consistent employment, over a high school student or preschooler. Realistically, a jury will never be able to measure a person's worth; however, the jury will try to quantify and compensate for the loss in the best manner possible.
