Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Wrongful Death Clients

We represented the family of an 8-year-old who drowned during her swim class at a public pool in Contra Costa County. We proved to the defendant that the drowning would not have occurred if the pool staff had followed their stated protocols for pool safety. The settlement included a memorial established in honor of our clients’ daughter.

We represented the wife and two adult children of a 57-year old man (assembly line worker) who was struck and killed by an Oakland Police patrol car while crossing within a crosswalk. Following a year of litigation, OPD admitted liability and settled the lawsuit.

We represented the surviving husband and two college-age children of a 50 year-old woman who was crossing the street within a crosswalk, when she was struck and killed by a SamTrans bus. We were able to negotiate the settlement after a year of litigation.
