HOW TO PROVE WRONGFUL DEATH

It takes a skilled and knowledgeable team to successfully prove a wrongful death claim. Our team of wrongful death attorneys have years of experience in investigating and prosecuting wrongful death cases so the negligent party is held liable. Successful prosecution of a wrongful death case involves proving the following:  

  • The death of an individual;
  • Negligence or recklessness of the defendant caused the death; and
  • The surviving family members have suffered financially and emotionally.

COMPENSATION IN A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM

While no amount of money can ever replace your loved one, compensation can help ease the financial burden on you and your family. In the state of California, wrongful death claims can be brought by the family members closest to the victim, with the decedent’s surviving spouse and children having the highest priority. When a wrongful death occurs, the victim’s heirs have the right to recover compensation on their own behalf for both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include:

  • Loss of financial support the decedent would have contributed to the family
  • Loss of gifts or benefits the family would have received from the decedent
  • Loss of household services that the decedent would have provided to the family
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Past medical expenses

Non-economic damages include:

  • Loss of love, affection, companionship, comfort, care, support and protection
  • Loss of sexual relations
  • Loss of the deceased’s training and guidance
