California Law Firm Representing Families Of Wrongful Death Victims
Wrongful death cases are incredibly challenging for your family. Not only does your family have to deal with the immediate, tragic loss of a loved one, but you have the added burden of realizing that the death could have been prevented if another person or corporation was simply more careful or paying more attention at the time of the accident.
It may be difficult for you to obtain real answers surrounding the tragic death of a loved one unless you hire a wrongful death lawyer.
You may have a difficult time finding out specific details as to the exact cause of the accident or who the other people involved were or who was at fault.
- The police may be reluctant to share that type of information with you because there may be a criminal case resulting from the death.
- Companies who cause deaths realize litigation will result and immediately try to hide the details of their wrongdoing from you.
All of these scenarios demonstrate why it is imperative for you to consult highly-regarded wrongful death lawyers rather than relying upon the police or some other government agency to investigate and provide answers. The only way you can be sure you are protecting your rights and your interests is to hire an advocate whose job is entirely to represent you and find the answers you deserve.
Wrongful Death Cases Are Complex
Most wrongful death cases are complex and require top-notch lawyers who can conduct thorough investigations into all of the circumstances surrounding an accident or incident that results in the death. At Taylor & Ring, we have handled many wrongful death cases and we understand the importance of investigating the accident quickly and thoroughly before evidence is destroyed, witnesses disappear and accident scenes are altered by further use. Our law firm has the financial resources, the relationships with experts, and the litigation know-how to ensure that the scene is preserved and the accident is investigated before it is too late.

- Car, truck, or motorcycle accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Industrial accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Criminal acts
- Dangerous products

We have the legal expertise in these areas of the law to successfully pursue a person, business, or corporation that has negligently caused a person’s death.
Examples Of Cases Handled By Our Firm
Taylor & Ring has obtained large verdicts and settlements for victims of wrongful death. We represented the mother and sister of Lana Clarkson, who was killed by music producer Phil Spector when he shot Lana at his home outside of Los Angeles. We worked closely with the District Attorney’s office to ensure that the civil wrongful death lawsuit against Phil Spector did not interfere with the criminal proceedings against him.
In another case, a 30-year-old man was visiting friends at their apartment complex in West Hollywood. The man fell to his death from the third floor walkway because construction crews temporarily removed a railing during a remodel, leaving only yellow tape where the railing had been. The tape was difficult to see at night, and when the man reached for the railing, he grasped air, lost his balance, and fell three stories. We successfully represented the man’s parents, who lived in Mexico, and obtained a very large settlement on the parents’ behalf.
