When a loved one dies, it takes an enormous emotional toll on family members, as well as also causing extreme financial hardship. Fatalities mean someone has to pay for a funeral and a burial, likely cover medical bills, and figure out how to continue providing for a family with the loss of one income. Surviving spouses are left without moral support and can struggle to cope with their loss of companionship. While non-economic damages are priceless, a wrongful death action is one way to help with that financial burden when a loved one is taken from you much too soon.

Your Wrongful Death Losses Can Look Like:

  • Funeral expenses and burial costs
  • Medical expenses
  • Part or all of family income
  • Emotional support, causing pain, and suffering

Following the death of a loved one, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you take legal action against the responsible parties and give you the support you need while you rebuild your life.

A civil action brought by the survivors — or the estate — of a person who died due to the negligence or intentional acts of another is called a “wrongful death” case. Each state has specific rules governing wrongful death claims, including restrictions identifying who has the legal right to file a lawsuit in court.

Under California law, spouses or domestic partners and children of the person who died can file a wrongful death suit as long as it’s done within the statute of limitations (usually two years). Other individuals close to the deceased, such as a putative spouse or stepchildren, might be able to file these claims if there are no surviving partners or children or claims already made. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers at Mova Law Group can give you legal advice on whether you are eligible to pursue your case under state laws.

Wrongful death suits can be filed if there is evidence another party is at fault for your loved one’s death. You will need to prove that the death occurred because of a fatal accident, or someone else’s negligence in order to recover the cost of medical expenses and funeral and burial expenses. You may require witness statements in the event of an accident and even personal testimony regarding the decedent’s character to make your case. Mova Law Group will sit down with you in a free consultation to go over what you will need for your claim.
