What Makes a Death “Wrongful?”

Tragic and truly blameless accidents can and do occur. However, when a fatal accident is caused by a person or entity’s negligence, the resulting death is considered “wrongful” in the eyes of the law. A death is also wrongful when it is the result of an intentional act, such as an assault. Wrongful death lawsuits are civil actions and are separate from any criminal proceedings that may take place.

Compensation in Wrongful Death Cases

In California, only certain individuals may bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one, including:

  • The surviving spouse or domestic partner of the deceased
  • The surviving child/children of the deceased

If there is no surviving spouse, domestic partner, or child, anyone who would be entitled to inherit the deceased’s estate may bring a wrongful death claim. Depending on the circumstances, this can include the parents, siblings, “putative” spouses/children, stepchildren, and other surviving relatives of the deceased. Additionally, anyone who can show that they were dependent on the deceased may be able to bring a wrongful death claim.

In wrongful death cases, plaintiffs (those who file the claims) may seek compensation for specific damages. This compensation is meant to reimburse plaintiffs for economic and non-economic losses they have suffered as a result of the death of their loved one.

Depending on the unique factors involved in your claim, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:

  • Any medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident/incident prior to death
  • Burial/funeral costs
  • Lost income, including lost expected income that the deceased would have reasonably earned
  • Lost inheritance
  • Loss of support, for those financially dependent on the deceased
  • Loss of consortium, love, companionship, affection, etc.
  • Value of household services provided or reasonably expected to be provided by the deceased
  • Pain and suffering

Our Irvine wrongful death lawyer can help you understand your legal options and take action aimed at securing the maximum compensation you and your family are owed. While we understand that no amount of financial recovery can make up for the immense loss you have suffered, it can ease the burdens you are facing and aid in helping you get back on your feet.
