Wrongful Death

When someone has been wrongfully killed, it can seem like nothing will ever be the same for surviving family members. While no amount of money can bring back a loved one, legal action can hold wrongdoers accountable for the harm they have caused. Taking legal action can also help give your family the resources necessary to move forward after a fatal injury if it was the family breadwinner that was killed.

At Butler Viadro, LLP, located in Oakland, California, we help the families of wrongful death victims. We are a team of experienced trial lawyers who have achieved a record of success handling these serious cases. We are well-respected for our success.

Wrongful Death Litigation

In a wrongful death lawsuit, your lawyer must usually prove that your loved one was killed as the result of another's negligent actions. Your lawyer must also show that the surviving family is entitled to monetary wrongful death damages because of those actions.

At Butler Viadro, LLP, we take your case seriously. We often work with experts and investigators, taking every action possible within the bounds of the law to help your wrongful death lawsuit be successful.

Holding Wrongdoers Accountable And Preventing Harm To Others

Many families find closure in holding wrongdoers accountable for the wrongful death their loved ones experienced. Many more take legal action in order to prevent future harm — hoping that legal action will change the situation that led to their loved one's death.

At Butler Viadro, LLP, we understand that each case is unique. Our Alameda County law firm works with your family to get the results that are best for you after a wrongful death or personal injury. Often, these results mean that settlement is the best option, but we never entertain settlement in lieu of realizing the true value of your case by taking it to trial.

We have handled many different types of wrongful death cases, including the ones listed below:

  • A driver was killed when another driver ran a red light and drove into the side of the first driver's car.
  • An elevator constructor was killed when an elevator car descended upon him, crushing him between the bottom of the elevator car and the ground floor landing, due to a corroded safety switch at a manufacturing facility.
  • 74-year-old man sustained a cervical fracture, rendering him a quadriplegic, after falling down on saw dust covered stairs that had no railing. The man then died as a result of complications associated with the quadriplegia.
  • A construction worker died after becoming impaled upon an elevator pit ladder.
