Wrongful Death Cases

Palm Springs Wrongful Death Attorney

Losing a close loved one such as a spouse, child or parent is never easy, especially when you know that if another person had not been negligent, your loved one would still be alive. While little can be done to alleviate the grief people must go through after a wrongful death has occurred, many things can be done to ensure that families remain financially stable.

The truth is, aside from dealing with the emotional after-effects of wrongful deaths, families must also deal with financial hardships. From paying for unexpected funerals to covering deceased loved ones' medical bills, wrongful deaths can be quite costly for family members. In the state of California, if families can prove that their loved ones' deaths were caused by other peoples' negligence, family members may file wrongful death claims, which may allow them to recover compensation from negligent parties.

Wrongful Death Claims & Car Accident Claims

Families who have lost loved ones due to the reckless actions or negligence of other people may take legal action by filing wrongful death claims. If successful, family members may receive compensation for their lost loved ones' medical bills, burial expenses and lost earned income. Family members may also seek punitive damages for their loss of companionship and pain and suffering.

The Palm Springs car accident lawyers at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. know that it takes a great deal of time for people to get over the loss of a closed loved one. During that time, the firm believes that people should be allowed to grieve without having to worry about their finances being compromised by unexpected costs. For this reason, the legal team is more than willing to help families recover the compensation they deserve from the negligent parties who are responsible for the deaths of their loved ones.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible.

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • After Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”
