Wrongful Death Liability in California

The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one can have a long lasting impact on a family emotionally and financially. If an individual's death was caused by an act of negligence or wrongdoing, there are civil remedies available for the families of decedents. While filing a criminal case in such situations is entirely up to the investigating police agency and the Los Angeles District Attorney's office, the decedent's family can still pursue monetary damages for their losses by going through the civil justice system and filing what is known as a wrongful death claim. In California, a "wrongful death claim" arises when one person dies due to the negligence or wrongful act of another person or entity.

A "wrongful death" differs from a criminal prosecution for murder and homicide in the sense that the civil action is brought to court directly by the survivors of the deceased person. The defendant in a wrongful death action is found "liable" for the damages. In a criminal case, the defendant faces penalties such as jail or prison time or even the death penalty. In a civil case, the family members of the decedent receive monetary damages for their losses. Also, in a criminal case, jurors find the defendant guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt." In a civil wrongful death case, jurors find the defendant liable through a "preponderance of the evidence."
