A wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the negligence of another person. Wrongful death cases are civil cases, which can occur alongside criminal cases, even if authorities clear the negligent individual of their criminal charges. The standard of proof for wrongful death cases is lower than in a criminal case, requiring only that the situation was more likely than not to have occurred. The purpose of a wrongful death case is for the deceased person’s loved ones to receive compensation for the economic damages they endured and will endure in the future.
A loved one’s death is excruciating. While you are grieving, you should not have to worry about how to financially support your family. No amount of money can replace your loved one and make up for the pain you suffered. The negligent individual who caused the wrongful death of your loved one must be held accountable. At Ashley Injury Lawyers, our skilled wrongful death attorneys will do everything possible to get you the compensation you deserve. We will hold the negligent party who caused your loved one’s death accountable.
California Wrongful Death Cases
According to California law, the surviving spouse, domestic partner, children, or other person entitled to the deceased’s property has a cause of action for a wrongful death case.
Before bringing your case forward, you must decide the proper amount of money that will compensate for the deceased’s death. The damages that you can claim due to the wrongful death of a loved one could be economic or non-economic. Factors that help decide this amount can include:
- Financial support the deceased person would have provided to your family.
- Loss of benefits you expected to receive from the deceased person.
- Funeral and burial expenses.
- Loss of the deceased person’s love, companionship, and moral support.
- Punitive damages.
The amount of compensation also depends on the deceased person’s expected lifespan before the wrongful death occurred. Our wrongful death attorneys will work with you to get you the most significant amount of compensation for your loss.
