What is Considered a Wrongful Death in the State of California?

A wrongful death claim might emerge in any circumstance in which a person dies as a consequence of the negligence of another. While no amount of money will bring a loved one back, wrongful death claims can provide much needed financial support during this difficult time. Here you will find a few examples that might constitute an unlawful action:

  • DUI/Vehicular Manslaughter
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
  • Product liabilities
  • Car accident fatality
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect

In a wrongful death case, the defendant’s culpability is represented only in terms of financial compensation, otherwise known as damages, which the court requires the defendant to pay to the deceased’s survivors. This is a significant distinction between a wrongful death lawsuit and a criminal homicide prosecution, where a conviction may result in imprisonment, probation, and other penalties. Our office makes sure it YOU, the client, who receives the compensation and not the government.

Wrongful death cases involve rigorous legal criteria that must be followed in order for your case to be successful. The survivors of the deceased will not be compensated for their loss unless the legal criteria are proven. For this reason, you can leave the legal work in the capable hands of the wrongful death lawyers at DeWitt Algorri & Algorri.

Are You Qualified to Make a Wrongful Death Claim?

You must be an “eligible party” to file a wrongful death claim. While a family member can normally file a lawsuit, there are intricate regulations and priorities established by law. According to California law, there is an established hierarchy for the eligibility of relatives who may file a claim for the wrongful death of a family member. They include:

  • Surviving spouse and children – If you lost a spouse due to wrongful death, you have the right to pursue compensation. If you have children, recovery compensation and damages awarded are divided among the spouse and children. According to law, biological and adopted children are included.
  • Domestic partner – Domestic partners may sue for wrongful death, depending on the circumstances of the partnership.
  • Financial dependents – If there are stepchildren or parents who depend financially on the deceased, they may be next in line to receive compensation from damage claims.
