California Wrongful Death Lawsuits

There are two specific statutes in California that are important to understand when you are preparing to file a wrongful death claim. The first helps to establish who qualifies as a victim of a wrongful cause of death. The second statute outlines who may pursue financial compensation following the wrongful death incident of their loved one. Understanding these two statutes will help you determine whether or not you can file a wrongful death claim in California.

Individuals that are identified as a victim of a wrongful death claim – In the state of California, you must prove that the victim died due to the negligence of another party in order to seek financial compensation. Typically, negligence is defined as an action (or failure to act) with a reasonable level of care. There are four primary elements that must be satisfied to prove negligence in a wrongful death suit.

  1. The individual responsible for the death of the victim had a duty of care towards the decedent.
  2. The individual breached that duty by a reckless action, a disregard to the safety of others, or a failure to act in a reasonable fashion.
  3. The breach of duty resulted in the incident that caused the death of the victim.
  4. The death led to an extreme emotional and financial burden to you and your family.
Individuals that may pursue a wrongful death claim – California has strict rules that dictate who may bring a wrongful death claim to the court system. Parents, spouses, and children of the victim have the clearest path to seek financial recover after the death of their loved one. There are exceptions to this rule, but other individuals seeking financial recovery in a wrongful death claim must follow more complicated processes when filing a wrongful death claim.

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.
