Types of Wrongful Death Cases That We Handle

Our attorneys in San Mateo handle any wrongful death case. If you’ve lost a loved one and someone’s negligence contributed, then we will assist you. Some case types that we’re familiar with are:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Tens of thousands of people in the Bay Area pass away because of traffic accidents each year. A countless number of these accidents result from someone’s negligence. If your loved one passed away from injuries suffered in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, then we’ll seek justice from liable parties.

Workplace Accidents

Employers and third parties have a responsibility to keep employees safe. Workers’ compensation may not adequately cover a loved one’s loss. We will take appropriate action on your behalf.

Accidents in Homes and Businesses

Falls and assaults are two types of incidents that can occur on the premises of a business, home, or apartment complex. Homeowners and business owners may be among liable parties when a death happens on their property.

Medical Errors

Wrongful death lawyers from our firm handle medical malpractice cases involving death. These cases can be especially complex, with medical jargon and concepts possibly requiring qualified experts. We will take all necessary measures to put forth a strong case.

Dangerous Products

When defective or dangerous products prove fatal, their manufacturers (and possibly others) may be liable.

These are just some of the case types that Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, LLP handles. If you have lost a loved one under any circumstances possibly involving negligence, complete a free consultation with our team. We may be able to initiate your case.

According to CCP § 377.60, you’re generally able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in California if you are:

  • The spouse or domestic partner of the deceased
  • A child of the deceased
  • A stepchild of the deceased who is a dependant
  • A grandchild of the deceased

  • A representative of the deceased’s estate

There may be a pecking order for who can file a wrongful death claim. An attorney from our team will explain in clear terms whether we can file a wrongful death claim in San Mateo on your behalf.

Types of Coverage We May Seek for You

We know that no two clients are the same. Those who’ve lost a loved one each have a unique story, and goals for a wrongful death claim can vary between clients. For many, a wrongful death claim is about enacting justice.

We’ll discuss what losses you’ve suffered, and which you’d like to pursue coverage for.

Recoverable damages may include:

  • Your pain and suffering
  • The loss of companionship and parental guidance (for spouses, domestic partners, and children)
  • The cost of your loved one’s funeral and burial
  • Medical costs resulting from the defendant’s negligence
  • Loss of financial protection
  • Counseling and other services the wrongful death required

Your wrongful death claim may be your sole opportunity to obtain justice. We’ll create a thorough record of your losses, ensuring that we leave nothing out.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    Cindy C.

    Lisa D.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
