What is Wrongful Death?

In California, wrongful death is defined as a loss of life resulting from the negligence of another party or entity. When a person suffers fatal injuries in a motorcycle crash or another type of accident caused by a negligent party, a wrongful death action may be filed on behalf of surviving family members. These claims are intended to seek reimbursement for the non-economic and economic damages stemming from the fatal incident. The purpose of this type of case is to provide compensation for damages and to hold the responsible individual or entity accountable for their negligent actions.

Only certain individuals are entitled to file a claim for wrongful death. This right is usually reserved for the immediate family of the deceased, including the spouse, domestic partner, or child, according to CCP 377.60. Based on the facts of the case, other relatives may be eligible for filing. For instance, if the deceased does not have a surviving spouse, domestic partner, then the decedent’s parents, putative spouse, stepchildren, and other relatives may have grounds for a claim for damages. An experienced California wrongful death lawyer can determine your eligibility for filing.
