Caring Wrongful Death Attorney in CA Recovering Damages for Families

Helping protect your rights in your time of grief

If someone else’s acts are to blame for the death of a family member, a San Jose wrongful death attorney can help you pursue a claim for wrongful death. I have more than 42 years of experience as a wrongful death lawyer in California. With a dedicated approach to investigating each aspect of my cases completely, I have earned my firm, the Law Office of Robert B. Kopelson, a reputation for skillful, sympathetic representation and for helping families recover damages.

Covering a wide variety of wrongful death claims

The untimely death of a loved one often results in an emotional and financial hardship that is difficult to overcome. The loss of the decedent’s contribution to the family in terms of income and household services can be devastating for your family. I can help you seek the compensation you are entitled to for such losses.

Wrongful death actions may include death as a result of vehicle accidents (including pedestrian and passenger injuries), slip and fall accidents and other dangerous premises situations such as construction accidents. I have extensive experience handling claims for these and many other types of fatal accidents.

Understanding wrongful death claims

A wrongful death claim arises when a person’s death is caused by the negligence, recklessness or wrongful acts of another. California law allows various family members to bring an action against the responsible party to recover their personal damages, including, but not limited to:

  • Surviving spouses
  • Domestic partners
  • Children
  • Parents, siblings, and others

In California, the statute of limitations in most cases involving personal injury and wrongful death is two years from the date the injury occurred. Claims against governmental entities and their employees must be served within six months. Do not delay in calling my office.

I am an understanding wrongful death lawyer, with the drive to achieve the best results in your wrongful death case. Clients attest to the attention given to their unique needs and my extraordinary litigation and investigative efforts towards winning their cases.
