What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
If your loved one has been killed by the actions of another person, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit allows you to seek compensation for expenses related to your loss.
A wrongful death lawsuit is different from a criminal case. It is a civil case filed against the defendant or person responsible for the death of your loved one. You may still have a wrongful death case, whether or not the defendant was convicted of criminal charges.
What Qualifies as a Wrongful Death?
A “wrongful death” is a death intentionally or unintentionally caused by another person. Death may also be considered “wrongful” if it was caused by negligence.
You could have a case if your loved one was killed in a Los Angeles car accident. You may also have a claim if your loved one would have had a personal injury case but did not survive their injuries.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
In California, there are specific guidelines on who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. If the victim was a spouse, domestic partner, or parent, you typically qualify to file a claim. You may also have a case if you were financially dependent on your loved one or were the beneficiary of their estate and lost part of your inheritance due to their wrongful death. Our Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers will clarify any concerns or inquiries you have surrounding filing a claim.
What Type of Compensation Is Available After a Fatal Accident?
A wrongful death claim can help you get the money you need to cover various expenses after a fatal accident. You may sue for funeral expenses, cost of final medical bills, and loss of financial stability following the wrongful death.
You may also be compensated for the loss of love and companionship. Our Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers can help you determine all of your expenses, including some you may not be aware of.
The statute of limitations in California is two years, so you may still have a wrongful death claim if some time has passed since your loved one has died.
