Have You Lost a Loved One?
When the unthinkable occurs to a loved one or family member, the impact can be devastating. The thought of hiring a lawyer to investigate legal claims surrounding the untimely death of a family member will never be your first priority. Your grieving and the emotional recovery by you and your family members must come first. The emotional toll resulting from a tragic death may seem too much to overcome at first, but it is important for your own life (and often, for the lives of surviving children) to begin the healing process and plan for life moving ahead. When that time comes and if you feel a third party may be responsible for the death of your loved one, call the lawyers at Johnson Garcia LLP to help understand your rights.
At Johnson Garcia LLP, we’ve unfortunately been involved in many tragic cases where lives have been lost due to catastrophic workplace accidents, automobile accidents, construction site collapses, explosions, burns, fires, or other events. Handling these type of cases is often difficult because there is no amount of money that can replace a life. That is why hiring the right lawyer is so important. When you hire Johnson Garcia LLP, you’re getting a trusted, experienced guide through the legal process in your most challenging time. You are getting lawyers who understand the compassion needed for you and, equally important, the toughness needed for the parties responsible for the death of your loved one.
Choose an Experienced Legal Council
The path to recovery of appropriate damages after the wrongful death of a loved one can take many different routes depending on the type of case and the underlying facts. Some cases may involve an early settlement that is in the best interest of our clients. Other cases, however, require a longer fight to hold the responsible party or parties accountable. You need legal counsel who can recognize the difference.
At Johnson Garcia LLP, we have represented those companies and insurers faced with wrongful death claims so we know the strategies and the most effective way to resolve these cases on the best terms – even if that means telling your story to a jury and asking them to hold the responsible parties accountable.

How long do I have to bring a legal claim after the death of a loved one?
It really depends. Under the law, there are often “statutes of limitations” or other rules that require lawsuits to be filed within a specified time. If claims are not brought within the required time frames, the right to recover damages and hold the responsible party accountable may be lost forever. That is why you need to understand your rights as soon as possible so you don’t lose them.
I think my spouse's employer had workman's comp. Can I bring a lawsuit to hold the responsible party accountable for the death?
It depends on the nature of the employment. Or most cases, this will not be a problem. Under certain types of compensation statutes (like the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (“LHWCA”)), however, an action against the employer may be precluded but claims against other responsible parties can be pursued. No matter what the situation, we will help you find the answers. Call Johnson Garcia LLP now for a case evaluation.
