Seasoned California attorney seeks legal relief after fatal incidents
An unexpected death changes the lives of family members forever. The pain can be even worse when someone else’s carelessness or willful act caused the tragedy.

At the Law Offices of Mark A.

Mark Theil has been nominated as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the nation, so you can rely on him to guide you through a difficult time.
Central Valley lawyer helps clients obtain damages from negligent parties
Across the Central Valley area, we advise family members on their rights and the different types of compensation that they might be eligible for. We handle wrongful death claims arising from all types of fatal incidents, including:
- Workplace accidents — Whether the cause is a machine failure, exposure to a hazardous substance or something else, when someone has been killed in a workplace accident, our firm reviews the relevant circumstances and seeks relief from the liable businesses and individuals.
- Auto collisions — As a former insurance company attorney, Mark Thiel knows how to resolve the competing claims that often accompany auto accident deaths. We press aggressively for a prompt, fair result when representing the families of crash victims.
- Birth injuries — Medical negligence can be difficult to prove, especially when the malpractice involves prenatal or obstetric care. However, we rely on birth-injury experts to provide authoritative evidence when a tragedy occurs before or during the childbirth process.
- Defective household products — Our firm has the track record to take on manufacturers, designers and other careless parties when a defective product has deadly consequences.
There is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death suit in California, so it is important to speak with an experienced attorney sooner rather than later. During a free initial consultation, we will explain the payments that wrongful death plaintiffs can receive, including compensation for the loss of household services, care and affection.
