Advocating For You After A Fatal Accident

You deserve experienced and compassionate attorneys on your side. At Gnau & Tamez, you will work directly with attorney Steve Gnau throughout your case. He is passionate about helping families understand their legal options after a loved one has been the victim of a fatal accident.

Easing The Pain In Your Life

We represent individuals and family members in Murrieta, Temecula and the surrounding areas after the loss of a loved one. Our goal is to win you the maximum available compensation while minimizing the role your personal injury or wrongful death case plays in your day-to-day life.

We will help you get through this difficult time in your life. Losing a loved one in an auto accident is an incomprehensible, devastating, and mind-numbing experience that no one should have to endure. We have represented numerous clients who have stood in your shoes. We work hard to ensure that your wrongful death claim eases the pain rather than make it worse.

Pursuing A Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful death claims can be brought by a spouse, domestic partners and other specified family members to recover for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of marital relations
  • Loss of society
  • Psychological treatment

These claims are based on losses suffered by the family member. It may also be possible to file a separate "survivorship" action to recover for the decedent's injuries, pain, and suffering experienced prior to the time of death.

Negligent or drunk drivers can be held liable for their actions. We have successfully represented family members after a loved one has been killed in a fatal accident involving drunk drivers, distracted drivers, drivers who are speeding, running red lights and other reckless behaviors, including accidents on freeways in California.
