Filing a California Wrongful Death Claim
Surviving family members such as spouses, children, siblings or parents of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim. What needs to be proven if you are filing a wrongful death claim though, is that the deceased had lost their life due to the negligent party and that the negligent party had a responsibility to the deceased as well.
Our attorneys will make sure that your family member's death is fully investigated and that no clue or fact will be left undiscovered. We will make sure that any entity who may be held responsible for the accident is, and that every avenue of compensation will be fully explored. If your family member died because of a hazardous street or defective product, we will do our best to hold those who are responsible accountable, and deter them from making future defective devices.
Plaintiff Compensation for Wrongful Death Cases
The compensation that is awarded to the surviving members of the deceased is based on what financial losses had come after the death of a family member.
The damages are usually an estimated amount of the financial losses and are based on a number of factors including:
- Age of the departed
- State of health of the deceased
- Funeral costs
- Medical expenses
- Future earnings that the deceased would accumulated while being employed
5 Different Types of Wrongful Death Cases
For a family to experience a wrongful death is devastating. When a person dies at the hands of someone else's negligence this can be grounds for a wrongful death. There are various reasons of why people lose their lives due to someone else's carelessness. Below are the most common kinds of wrongful death cases.
5 different types of wrongful death cases:
- Car crash: It has been reported, that in one year over 3,126 people had lost their lives in a car accident. Many of those crashes occur due to a driver being careless. The leading cause of accidents is distracted driving such as eating food or texting. .
Work accidents: Many wrongful deaths take place at work because of tripping over equipment or not the proper handling of equipment. These incidents mostly occur at factories
or construction sites. The surviving members of the employee can file either a workers compensation claim or can also file a suit against the negligent party.
- Medical malpractice: Medical malpractice is defined as when a patient is harmed or killed due to a medical professional such as a doctor not performing to the best of her/his abilities. A doctor/client relationship needs to be established and proved in order to pursue a medical malpractice suit. It needs to proven that the doctor had been treating the patient for a period of time.
- Defective products: Liability falls on the manufacturer if a person is deceased because of a defective product. Some examples include food poisoning, products with the intent to protect children such as car seats or defective car parts.
- Semi-truck crashes: Big-rig crashes may seem like they should be placed in the same category as auto accidents but due to their size they can cause a different, substantial amount of damage. There are also causes that are unique to semi-truck accidents such as over-sized loads or mechanical problems.
