Accidents in California that result in the death of a loved one are some of the most difficult matters to handle. Often without a witness to support negligence, wrongful death cases are typically vigorously defended, and liability can be hard to prove. Insurance companies for the negligent party, including large medical facilities and corporations, have very deep financial resources devoted to fight wrongful death cases, attacking liability and damages for years. With the suffering inherent in losing a family member or friend, having to fight a belligerent and indifferent insurance company to secure a fair and reasonable resolution is often a mental and emotion nightmare. The attorneys at NSH&M have been handling wrongful death cases for more than 30 years, and we have the experience and resources necessary to assemble a strong team of attorney and experts necessary to get the best result possible. We only handle such cases on a contingency fee basis, and will advance the costs required for medical and forensic experts to prove liability and establish damages. Every wrongful death case we accept, whether from medical negligence, car accidents or defective products, is handled by a partner at the firm with years of experience taking such cases from the initial interview to either settlement or trial. If you have questions about a personal injury case, we would be happy to talk to you without charge. We invite you to contact one of the attorneys listed on this page.
