California Wrongful Death Lawyer

A wrongful death claim may be filed when a death is caused by another’s negligence, whether it be recklessness, malpractice, simply inaction. Family members of the deceased may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Dependants and other beneficiaries can receive compensation for the support that would have been provided by the person who was killed.

Helping Families Recover Compensation For a Lost Loved One

Unlike other personal injury lawsuits, a wrongful death claim is a civil suit aimed at recovering compensation for family members and dependents (including spouses, children, and parents).

Hardship Must Be Proven

Heirs and beneficiaries of a wrongful death lawsuit must prove that they will suffer a hardship as a result of the loss or death. Typically, a wrongful death attorney must show:

  • A person died
  • The death was caused by the carelessness of another, and could have been avoided
  • A family member or beneficiary will suffer a financial or emotional hardship as a result of the death
