Accidents can happen at any time, and tragically, some of them lead to a fatality. When a loved one dies due to the negligence of a business, government entity or person, this is classified as a wrongful death. Examples of these cases include medical malpractice, drunk driving and criminal activity such as a shootings. If your family has lost a loved one due to someone else’s direct actions, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Consulting with a qualified Santa Barbara wrongful death lawyer is important.
One major cause of these deaths in Santa Barbara is preventable auto accidents. Approximately 90 people are seriously injured or killed each year in the city by a drunk driver, and speeding incidents almost double this number. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are especially susceptible to suffering from a life-altering injury or fatality on local roadways, and this makes it imperative for every resident to be aware of their legal rights. California law imposes a statute of limitations and familial restrictions on these cases, which makes it important to connect with Santa Barbara’s premier wrongful death lawyers at The May Firm for advice.

After all, the loss of a loved one is often more than just emotionally devastating, and we can help you protect your financial future. Our team of attorneys has successfully negotiated millions in combined damages for our clients, including a $1.9 million wrongful death settlement involving a pedestrian and a negligent motorist.
