When accidents turn fatal, it is a tragedy for the entire family. At the Law Office of Michael J. Kielty, attorney Michael Kielty understands that no amount of money can erase the feelings of grief and loss caused by the unexpected death of a loved one. However, financial compensation can help ease the financial strain many families experience after a loved one passes away.
Located in the Scripps Ranch area of San Diego, the Law Office of Michael J. Kielty helps surviving family members throughout San Diego County bring wrongful death claims that hold wrongdoers liable for the death they caused, and provide families with the financial support they need during times of grief.
Any type of accident can turn fatal. Car accidents as well as truck accidents and motorcycle accidents often leave individuals with severe and life-threatening injuries. When accidental deaths occur, family members often find themselves not only reeling from their emotional loss, but also struggling to pay bills. Large medical bills incurred before death, funeral costs, and loss of the deceased's income and benefits, can place entire families under financial strain.
In California, there are two types of wrongful death claims. The first is based on the pain and suffering experienced by fatal accident victims before their death. The second applies to the loss of consortium and other emotional and financial losses experienced by surviving family members.
Attorney Michael Kielty has 33 years of legal experience. Having handled many wrongful death matters in the past, he understands the tragic effect a fatal accident has on the entire family. He works closely with clients to bring wrongful death claims that compensate them for their emotional and financial loss.
After a fatal accident, insurance companies know the potential for a large claim exists. However, in some instances, they still make an initial offer that doesn't begin to cover the financial loss caused by the death.
Attorney Michael Kielty is a skilled negotiator and tough litigator. He has worked diligently to get his clients fair financial compensation. Mr. Kielty thoroughly investigates the accident or event which caused the death, and he works with forensic accountants and vocational experts to determine the deceased's earning capacity and calculate the financial loss caused by his or her untimely death.
