The most heartbreaking circumstances are those that involve wrongful death. Wrongful death cases can involve medical malpractice, premises liability accidents, defective products, workplace injuries, motor vehicle accidents or other incidents. Wrongful death always involves the negligence or misconduct of another party.
The following are individuals who are allowed to file a wrongful death case (the priority being given to the closest living relative):
Compensation you could be entitled to include medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of any household services the deceased would have provided, loss of the value of financial support the deceased would have provided and pain/suffering.
In California, you have a two year statute of limitation to bring a wrongful death claim. You will want a knowledgeable wrongful death attorney on your side as it must be shown that another party was at fault in the death of your loved one, for you to have a wrongful death case. Because you can be faced with a mountain of medical bills and a severe loss of income following a loved one’s wrongful death, you need to act quickly to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve.
