Wrongful Death Attorneys in California

What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

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

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). These claims can be very complex and emotionally fraught. It is important that you speak to an experienced attorney about your case. At Torem & Associates, we can help you understand your options and protect your right to compensation. We understand just how difficult this time is for you and your family, which is why our California wrongful death attorneys offer compassionate, personalized legal guidance as we tirelessly fight for your fair recovery and justice on behalf of your loved one.

Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim

When a wrongful death claim is involved, insurance companies will usually attempt to reach a quick settlement. Our law office is here to help you during this time so that the insurance company doesn’t pressure you into a bad decision. We know what your case could be worth and will not stand for a big insurance company trying to get you to accept a low-ball offer.

Some of the damages available in a wrongful death claim include:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages (to include future earnings)
  • Lost inheritance
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain & suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Punitive damages

Hardships Must Be Proven

Surviving family members, 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

Perhaps most crucial of these factors is that the deceased was killed as a result of negligence. While truly blameless accidents do occur, many accidents are caused by someone else’s careless or reckless actions. For example, if your loved one was killed by a drunk driver or someone who was texting while driving, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. The same is true if your family member died due to a defective product, medical malpractice, pedestrian accident, or any other act of negligence.
