Elder Wrongful Death Lawyers in Los Angeles

Fighting for Justice in the Face of Elder Abuse & Neglect

In some instances, elder abuse or neglect can be so severe that a victim loses his or her life. This may give surviving family members cause to file a wrongful death action against the at-fault party. This type of civil lawsuit can hold the at-fault party or parties accountable for medical bills, funeral costs, emotional trauma, and more.

While there is no amount of financial compensation that could possibly make up for the tragic and unexpected loss of a loved one, a successful wrongful death action can have key benefits for you and your family. It can help you build a more stable financial future, and it can bring peace of mind in knowing that justice has been served. By working with the Los Angeles elder wrongful death lawyers at Garcia & Artigliere, you can rest assured that your case is in competent hands. We will handle everything while you focus on healing and honoring your loved one’s memory.
