When losing someone due to the negligence of another, you have the burden of proving that the defendant, such as those listed above, was at fault. However, with the attorneys at Robins Cloud LLP by your side, this burden is no longer yours, but ours. Our efforts will be focused on establishing that the defendant or defendants were obligated to act in accordance with the duty of care owed to your loved one, and that they failed to do so. For example, if an employer had a duty to provide a safe work environment, but failed to maintain equipment properly, and that failure was the cause of your loved one’s death, then that employer could be found liable for the death. Our team of attorneys and experts will work hard to build your case against those responsible, to protect your rights and to make sure justice is served.
Similar to personal injuries, wrongful death is usually caused by the recklessness, negligence, or intentional acts of another. However, injuries in wrongful death situations are obviously fatal, and oftentimes it is difficult to prove who is at fault.

If the defendant is found guilty of murder, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim against them as well. The experienced and knowledgeable personal injury and wrongful death attorneys in our California office can advise you as to whether you have a wrongful death claim. If you choose to pursue a claim, our team will work hard to prove who is responsible for the death of your loved one in order to achieve the best possible results in your case.
