The accident was fatal and your loved one was killed. But what if the accident was not an accident and someone can be held accountable for your loss? The loved ones of a victim can be compensated in the case of wrongful death.
What is a wrongful death?
A wrongful death can be a murder, a case of irresponsible driving, medical malpractice or any careless act that lead to the death of another human being. A wrongful death is when someone dies as a result of a negligent- or intentional act by someone else.

Who can start a wrongful death claim?
In California, a spouse, domestic partner, child or grandchild of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim.
What damages can be recovered?
The descendants of the deceased can receive money as compensation for monetary losses and expenses. This can include the deceased projected future income, funeral expenses, medical care and even the value of household services like cooking and childcare.
These are monies awarded for physical pain and suffering, the destruction of the ability to enjoy life, and the loss of love, moral support, companionship and more. How these are awarded depends on the jury that heard the facts of the case.
