Losing a loved one is always traumatic, but the grief can become exacerbated when they pass away at an untimely age due to a wrongful death accident. If your loved one lost their life because of the negligent actions or in-action of an individual, business or government entity, you have the right under California law to file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, the law also has very specific stipulations about who can file a suit and how long they are eligible to do so. This makes it imperative to speak to a San Luis Obispo wrongful death lawyer immediately about your case.

San Luis Obispo has an average of 25 alcohol related auto accidents every year that lead to a serious injury or fatality. As of 2015, the county also has the negative distinction of having the highest number of bicycle related deaths in the entire state. These two factors alone can lead to a lot of avoidable wrongful deaths, and it is vital for the surviving children or spouse to receive assistance during such a difficult time. The May Firm has experience handling these sensitive cases, and we are here for you.
