If you have lost a child, spouse or someone else that you love, you probably feel like the world has come to an end. It is normal to feel upset, angry, and confused when a loved one is suddenly taken away from you as a result of someone else’s recklessness or negligence. You may not know what to do or where to turn for help.

We understand just how devastating it can be to learn that a death may have been preventable, and we will do everything we can to pursue justice for the loved one that you have lost.  

Compensation in a Wrongful Death Action

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
