Wrongful Death Lawyers In San Luis Obispo

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.

Contact us to get started. It is important to have the proper legal representation on your side if you’re involved in a motorcycle crash. Often wrongful blame is placed on the rider in a multi-vehicle collision due to the increased risk that comes with riding a motorcycle. Insurance companies are reluctant to side with the motorcyclist and oftentimes will attempt to place the full or partial blame on them. Don’t accept that blame and the legal repercussions that come with it.

Call (866) 619-6679 to schedule a free consultation with our award-winning motorcycle accident lawyers. We’ll help determine the viability of your case based on your testimony and help you determine the best way to proceed. Working on a contingency fee means our lawyers are only compensated when your case or settlement is won, and our extensive experience and case history allow us to settle most claims out of court, giving you a faster resolution to your case and allowing you to focus on your recovery process. We factor in every possible expense when building your settlement: Medical bills, wage loss, property damage, and emotional suffering are all considered. Our goal is to help you put your life back in order to the best of our ability.
