We understand that the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one is devastating and challenging. In such a time, it is difficult to determine what course of action to take. When a parent, spouse, child, domestic partner, has been lost as a result of someone’s negligence, it is best to contact a wrongful death attorney immediately to discuss your legal options. For example, deaths caused by a dangerous or defective product, a drunk driver, the construction of an unsound building, or failing to diagnose a medial condition may be “wrongful death” under California law.
Who can file a wrongful death lawsuit?
Generally, wrongful death lawsuits or claims are filed by the children, spouse, siblings, family members, or beneficiaries of the person who died. When you contact us, our personal injury wrongful death attorneys will help you determine who in your family can potentially file a viable wrongful death lawsuit. You may be entitled to recover monetary damages for:
• Earnings the deceased person would have provided
• Loss of the victim’s companionship
• Any gifts the deceased person would have given the survivor
• Advice and moral support
• Loss of deceased’s love
• Sexual relations between married spouses
• Expenses associated with the death, such as medical and funeral bills
• Pain, suffering, or mental anguish suffered by the survivor
