Negligent acts are the most common causes of personal injuries and wrongful death throughout California, as careless or reckless behavior can tragically take another person’s life without warning.
When our clients’ loved ones are killed because of another’s negligent behavior, the overwhelming nature of their death — and the fact that it could have been prevented — is devastating.
Some of the most common causes of wrongful death in Fresno may include, but are not limited to:
If you have lost a loved one to another person’s negligence, do not attempt to take on the insurance company alone. Our Fresno wrongful death attorneys will outline your case and present the evidence necessary for the insurance company to take your claim seriously and begin meaningful negotiations with our Fresno personal injury law firm, while you take the time you need to grieve with your family.
There is no limit to the ways someone can lose their life when negligence is a factor. However, in California and throughout the country, motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of fatalities caused by negligence.
Last year, there were over 3,600 fatalities that occurred during traffic collisions in California, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Over half of the crashes where a fatality was recorded were the direct cause of negligence, including over 1,060 speeding-related deaths and almost 950 alcohol-related deaths.
Other traffic fatalities that occurred on our California roadways last year included:
While not all these deaths were the result of negligence, an overwhelming amount was, including distracted driving, reckless behavior, driving while fatigued, and failing to obey traffic signs and signals that left sour residents without their loved ones.

I have worked with a number of attorneys over my 73 years. When I found myself a victim of a rear end auto accident and with Insurance Companies giving me the good old run around treatment, I knew I needed help. Dreading to talk with one of the attorneys I used in the past because I deemed them as big a problem as I was encountering, I decided to look for a new face to represent me. I found Frank Nunes and his staff of professionals, from the moment I met and counseled with them they helped me get my life back on track both physically and legally. If I ever need a counselor for any legal matter in the future, I will be seeking the advice and counsel of Frank Nunes and his staff of professionals.
