When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you need to show that an innocent victim, such as your loved one, died because of the fault or negligence of another person. If you can prove the death was because of another person’s negligence, you may be able to bring a civil claim for substantial money damages against the accused perpetrator when there is a link between the negligence and death. Contact one of our expert wrongful death attorneys here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide you through the complicated litigation process.
A California electrical company is being sued by several Montecito, California residents claiming that either their transformers caught fire or exploded. This allegedly set off of a chain reaction of events which led to the wildfires burning through all vegetation. It is believed that had there been vegetation in the area, the mudslides that resulted from heavy rains would have been prevented and lives would have been saved. The first wrongful death lawsuit accusing the electrical company of negligence was filed in the Santa Barbara, California Superior Court.
That wrongful death lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Peter Flerat by his longtime partner, Robert Barajas. Barajas was lucky enough to have been able to exit their house, climb on top of debris and safely reach a tree. Peter, unfortunately, was swept away during the mudslide.
