When it comes to filing a wrongful death claim, there are two important elements that must be considered. First, who can be considered the victim of a wrongful death claim; and second, who is allowed to seek damages because of the wrongful death incident?
- Wrongful Death Victims – The victim of a wrongful death is someone that has died because of a negligent act or wrongful choice of another person. This negligence requires (1) the at-fault party to have a duty of care to the decedent, (2) the at-fault party to somehow breach that duty of care, (3) that breach of care led to the incident that caused the death of your loved one, and (4) the death resulted in loss to you and other family members. California does not consider a fetus or unborn child under its wrongful death laws, nor the death of someone that occurred when they were in the process of committing a felony. There are certain rules pertaining to wrongful death that dictate whether or not the victims of suicide should be considered. Our attorneys at Walch Law can help you determine if your loved one qualifies as a wrongful death victim.
- Individuals That Can Seek Wrongful Death Damages – California has specific regulations regarding who can bring forth a wrongful death claim for damages against another individual or party. While the children and spouse of the decedent are clearly individuals that can file a wrongful death claim, other family members are subject to complicated rules as to whether or not they may bring a wrongful death claim. If you believe that you have reason to submit a wrongful death claim following the death of a loved one, Walch Law can help you to determine the best cause of action to recover for your loss and maximize your compensation.
