San Joaquin County is located in northern California, near the city of Sacramento. Despite sharing a name, San Joaquin County is not home to the city of San Joaquin, which is situated in Fresno County. Instead, San Joaquin County is best known for the city of Stockton, its county seat, and a bustling community outside of Sacramento.
European settlement of the area dates back to the early days of California. In fact, San Joaquin County, which is named after the San Joaquin River that runs through it, was one of the original counties in California. Today, San Joaquin County has grown into a thriving cluster of communities, including the Stockton Metro Area.
In addition to its county seat, San Joaquin County also includes the combined statistical areas of San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland. Located in Northern California’s Central Valley, San Joaquin County is just a short trip from the San Francisco Bay Area, one of the West Coast’s most influential cultural and innovative hubs.
As is the case with all towns in the U.S., San Joaquin residents and visitors are exposed daily to the possibility of suffering personal injuries – whether from road accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bits, or medical negligence. Sadly, such injuries may result in the loss of a life.
Wrongful Death in San Joaquin County
Losing a loved one is devastating. This is particularly true in cases of wrongful death, or the untimely passing of another due to negligent behavior.
Unfortunately, wrongful death cases are not uncommon. There are a number of negligent actions that can cause or contribute to wrongful death. For example, a company that failed to perform routine preventative maintenance on a vehicle may be implicated in the death of a driver that was caused by faulty or broken parts.
And while no amount of compensation can bring them back, it can provide you and your family financial comfort as you rebuild your life. No one is ever prepared to lose a loved one to wrongful death, and it is not uncommon for the victim’s family to face mounting challenges, including lost wages, pain and suffering or leftover medical costs.
How Do I File a Wrongful Death Claim?
If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another individual or entity, it is in your best interest to contact a personal injury attorney to inquire about recovering damages in a wrongful death claim. In the state of California, damages in wrongful death cases are separated into two categories – economic and non-economic damages. Only a qualified personal injury attorney can advise as to your best course of action regarding the recovery of such damages.
