Wrongful Death: What to Know
You can bring a wrongful death lawsuit if you’re domestic partners with the deceased, their surviving spouse, children, even grandchildren, and more. In fact, anyone who would be entitled to the deceased’s properties under California’s laws on intestate succession could bring a suit.
In California, survivors can bring a wrongful death case for any type of claim if it’s based on negligence, recklessness, or even an internationally wrongful act.
Some of these could include medical malpractice, vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, elderly neglect, and others.
We strongly recommend that, if you believe you have a case, you reach out to us.
So often, a survivor will think: “well, I don’t know if I have a case or not,” when the truth is that actually they have a very strong case.
The worst that can happen is that we’ll say “you probably don’t have a case.” It’s worth it for all of the compensation that you could receive to help you during this difficult time.

These are different kinds of damages in a California wrongful death case. Often, there are economic damages. These can include funeral expenses and burial expenses.
They can also take the form of financial support that your loved one would have contributed to your family through what would have been the rest of their lifetime. That includes gifts and benefits that you would have expected to receive from your loved one, too.
In some cases, this can even include the “reasonable value” of household services your loved one would have provided.
That said, many of these damages aren’t economic in nature.
Your loved one was, in so many ways, so much more than just the money they would have provided to your family.
When you lose them, you lose so much companionship, moral support, affection, protection, training, guidance, and even sexual relations.
Each of those, among others, are damages that you can file in a wrongful death case.
When you lose someone you love through the actions of someone else, it can be the most difficult experience. These damages can be a boon during a challenging time.
