San Francisco Wrongful Death Attorneys

When a domestic partner, parent, spouse or child has been killed in an accident, the loss is sudden and devastating. In addition to the pain, grief and emotional loss, family members must deal with moving into the future without their loved one.

At times like this, families turn to the California wrongful death attorneys who can help make sense of the legal and financial aspects of the family’s loss and obtain financial compensation from those responsible.

An Experienced Wrongful Death Law Firm

At Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger, our compassionate and experienced California wrongful death lawyers help families of fatal accident victims secure the financial compensation necessary to adapt and move forward. Our firm has been helping survivors for more than 45 years. We excel at identifying the negligence or indifference that led to death and holding those people or entities accountable.

We regularly handle traffic fatality cases, including wrongful deaths resulting from motorcycle crashes and collisions with trucks. Our team explores the root causes and third-party liability, such as SUV design flaws resulting in rollovers or other auto defects contributing to fatal injuries. If a loved one was killed by an intoxicated driver, the bar, restaurant or party host who served the alcohol may be liable for damages.

We have litigated health care-related deaths, including malpractice by physicians and surgeons, negligence and neglect in nursing home care, and accidents and negligence in Kaiser Permanente hospitals.

Our legal team has handled catastrophic events such as plane crashes and fatalities from fires and explosions. Sometimes death occurs right in the home, from dangerous children’s toys or household consumer product. Perhaps the victim died in a work-related accident, from chemical exposure, defective machinery or equipment or a construction hazard such as a scaffolding accident.

The lawyers of Walkup Melodia have the resources and resolve to pursue justice for grieving families. We know what it takes to establish liability on the part of property owners, private employers and public entities, including death at the hands of police from brutality or deadly force. Our attorneys are also familiar with the special considerations required when seeking damages for the death of a newborn or the loss of a child.

A Committed Legal Team For Your Family

Our lawyers have represented husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, and domestic partners in wrongful death actions against those responsible and accountable for the wrongful deaths of loved ones.

We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of our wrongful death clients by bringing claims against negligent drivers, public entities, insurance companies, major corporations, hospitals, doctors, employers, trucking companies and other wrongdoers.

If your family has suffered the loss of a loved one because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness or because of an accidental mishap, a medical disaster, a work-related injury, a defective product or other wrongful conduct, talk to our California wrongful death lawyers. We have almost 50 years of experience confronting individuals, corporations and insurance companies to hold them responsible for an untimely and preventable loss of life.
