An unexpected death creates financial hardships and a great void in lives of the survivors. Where some criminal defense firms are content with a quick settlement from a wrongful death case, the legal team at the law firm of Guenard & Bozarth works to hold the wrongful parties fully accountable. We seek compensation for medical bills and funeral expenses, loss of the person’s projected income and household contributions, as well as mental anguish damages under California law for loss of love, companionship, counsel and consortium. The estate can also seek damages for the person’s conscious pain and suffering prior to death.

Time is of the essence in a wrongful death suit. These claims also involve complex and confusing legal requirements before a lawsuit can be filed. Our lawyers will take action to preserve evidence, locate witnesses and begin building a case. We handle all of the legal details so that you can attend to other pressing matters in the aftermath of your loved one’s death.

If your loved one was killed in a car accident or other preventable tragedy, call us or contact us online today. Our Sacramento wrongful death lawyers provide a free consultation, with offices in Sacramento as well as Elk Grove. There are no attorney fees unless we recover compensation.
