Wrongful Death Claims Explained
Wrongful death claims are civil efforts where the victim’s legal heirs and qualified dependents can pursue claims against the party whose negligent actions caused the tragic death of their loved one. Wrongful death claims are separate from criminal case proceedings, and if fault can be proven in a wrongful death claim, the victim’s heirs and qualified dependents can be awarded monetary damages. If you have recently lost a loved one as a result of another’s careless or negligent actions, the party responsible for your loved one’s death may be liable to pay a sum of money for your losses.

What Constitutes Wrongful Death
Wrongful death usually happens as a consequence of another party’s negligence. In most cases, the victim sustained fatal injuries as a result of an accident, such as an automobile accident. Although not all accident-related fatalities are considered wrongful deaths, many are. When a person, business, organization or government entity fails to take reasonable care to avoid harming others, this failure can lead to serious injuries, including fatal injuries.
Pursuing a Wrongful Death Claim in California
Upon a wrongful death, the victim’s legal heirs and qualified dependents may pursue a civil claim seeking compensation for the damages they have incurred as a result of the death. Based on the California Code of Civil Procedure §377.60, only certain individuals have legal grounds to bring a case forward. The law also prioritizes the individuals who can pursue a claim.
