Downey Personal Injury Attorney

Downey Personal Injury Lawyers

Though Los Angeles County is most well known for its thriving metropolis, the community of Downey has a unique history of its own.

Situated 13 miles southeast of Los Angeles’ downtown district, in a region known as the Gateway Cities, Downey is perhaps best known as the home of the Apollo space program. It also happens to feature the oldest operational McDonalds restaurant in the world, which continues to be enjoyed by the city’s more than 111,700 people.

Like any community, residents of Downey and the surrounding areas in Southern California face a certain degree of risk for personal injury or accident, including what is termed as “wrongful death”.

While not all accidents can be avoided entirely, it is possible to prevent accidents, particularly in cases involving negligence. If you’ve been injured in an accident, call Downey personal injury attorney Joshua Glotzer for a free consultation.

Wrongful Death Claims in California

Wrongful death is best defined as a situation where an individual dies as a result of another person’s or entity’s negligence. When wrongful death occurs, victims typically leave behind loved ones who are left to deal with painful loss, among other hardships.

Typically, only a victim’s kin my file wrongful death claims. That includes minor children, a spouse or the victim’s parents. However, there are certain situations where adult children may sue for wrongful death in the case of their parents, and vice versa.

Other individuals able to file suits include:

  • Parents of unmarried children
  • Domestic partners
  • Biological or adopted children
  • Grandparents
  • Siblings
  • Financial dependents of victim

It’s important to note that no two wrongful death claims are alike. However, there are some situations that remain consistent among wrongful death claims, including:

  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Explosions
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents

Do You Have a Wrongful Death Claim?

If someone you love has lost his or her life due to another individual or entity’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. In these types of cases, it’s about more than just peace of mind – many victims may have the primary source of income or support for the family, and financial strength may be in question.

In Downey and other communities across Southern California, Glotzer & Leib, LLP works with families of wrongful death victims to pursue full and fair legal action against the negligent parties. We understand that losing someone close to you is a traumatic experience, and believe that the added financial, emotional and psychological burdens are ones that you should not have to handle alone.

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”

    “Don’t try to deal with insurance companies on your own. They strung me along for almost two years before I gave the case to Glotzer & Leib. Josh and his team quickly obtained a settlement that netted me many times what the insurance company was offering. Thank You!”
