Damages in Wrongful Death Cases

Our California Personal Injury Attorneys will fight to obtain the compensation that you deserve. In California, generally each wrongful death claimant is entitled to money damages for all harm suffered and likely to suffer in the future due to the victim's death. The amount of money is the total amount of benefits each heir can proof that heir could expect to receive had the person not died.

The following amounts are generally allowed under California law for a Wrongful Death claim:

  1. All past medical, hospital and other medical related charges;
  2. All burial, funeral and related expenses;
  3. All past and projected future loss of earnings and support (support includes things like food, clothing, shelter and financial contributions);
  4. Loss of services (services includes things like household services following the death of a spouse or parent and parental advice following the death of a parent);
  5. Loss of love, comfort, society, companionship, affection and moral support;
  6. And any and all other appropriate damages permitted under California law.
Tax Consequences

In general, wrongful death damages are not taxable - See IRS Sect. 104. We advise that you consult your CPA or other tax adviser for specific advice on your case and we can refer you to such specialists, whenever requested.

Client Reviews
You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
