What Can You Recover in a Wrongful Death Claim?
If your loved one was killed due to the negligence, recklessness, intentional actions, or omissions of another party, you have a legal avenue to collect damages under California law. The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to hold the wrongdoer accountable for the pain and suffering and other costs inflicted on the victim. It is also designed to provide financial recovery for the losses suffered by the victim’s dependents.
Those who can bring a wrongful death suit include dependent spouses, domestic partners, children, stepchildren, parents, and siblings.
Damages in wrongful death cases may include:
- Medical costs incurred
- Pain and suffering endured by the victim prior to death
- The loss of financial support that would have been provided by the victim over his or her lifetime
- The emotional losses suffered by surviving dependent family members
- Funeral and burial expenses
Bringing a Wrongful Death Claim
To win a wrongful death suit in court or to obtain an out-of-court settlement, evidence must show that the defendant was at fault for the death. Wrongful death suits often occur in the context of automobile accidents, defective product accidents, recreational accidents, violent crimes, and other accidents.
Defendants will often try to blame the victim. Because of this, it is critical to begin working with an experienced wrongful death attorney at our firm as soon as possible. We can collect physical evidence and eyewitness testimony to prove fault in our pursuit of maximum financial recovery.
