Wrongful Death Attorney

Throughout our nearly four decades of serving clients' families in wrongful death cases, we have seen how devastating the sudden death of a loved one can be to a family. There is the loss, the pain, frustration, worry and sorrow that come with every wrongful death lawsuit. We understand. And we know how to help you through this most difficult of times, like we have successfully helped many past clients. We are The Law Offices of William D. Shapiro., with offices in the Inland Empire.

When You Don't Know What To Do Next

If you do not know where to start, we invite you to start by talking to one of our partners, William D. Shapiro. In his nearly four decades of practice, he has represented thousands of clients in wrongful death cases and helped them move forward after a tragic and devastating loss.

As a part of his legal strategy, Mr. Shapiro will try to show the kind of person your loved one was, his or her financial contributions to the family, and the lost value of companionship as a spouse, parent, sibling or child. In order to recover compensation, he must then show that the negligent behavior caused your loved one's death.

His experience representing individuals, families and estates in wrongful death lawsuits includes (but is not limited to) cases involving:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Workplace and construction site accidents
  • Nursing home deaths
  • Dangerous medication and defective medical products
  • Defective and dangerous consumer, industrial and children's products
  • Defective automobile components or seat belt/air bag failure

Significant Wrongful Death Case

One of Mr. Shapiro's significant wrongful death litigation results includes a $26 million judgment when a mother and her son were in a fatal accident involving an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer accident. The young daughter in the car suffered traumatic brain injuries. The trucking company was found liable for damages after the driver demonstrated that management knew the brakes on the rig were not in proper working order. Compensation awarded included $5 million in punitive damages.
