Elements of a Wrongful Death Case

Wrongful death is any death caused by a negligent, careless, intentional or reckless act of another person or corporation.

The required elements for a wrongful death claim include:

  • Death of person (Fatal accident or injury
  • That death was caused by the negligence of another
  • There are surviving family members who are monetarily suffering due to that death
  • There must be a personal representative appointed to bring the suit on behalf of the decedent’s estate.

If you are able to prove that you will experience severe future emotional and financial hardship as a result of the fatal injury or accident of this person, per California law there are three kinds of damages you may be entitled to claim:

  • The loss of the love, companionship, comfort, affection, society, solace, moral support, and (if a spouse is a claimant) consortium of the decedent
  • The value of the household services the decedent would have provided in the future
  • The value of the financial support which the claimant would have received from the decedent but for the death.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Riverside?

Before anyone can recover any damages, first you have to determine whom is actually authorized to seek wrongful death damages.

As a general rule, the first people in line are the surviving spouse, children and the surviving issue of deceased children of the decedent. If these relationships do not exist, then the parents, siblings, children of deceased siblings, grandparents and their lineal descendants may make a claim.

The line continues further down to the putative spouse (a person who can prove that he or she had a good faith belief that he or she was married to the decedent but was, in fact, not married to the decedent), children of the putative spouse, stepchildren, and parents of the decedent.

How to Prove Negligence in a Wrongful Death Case

These factors can aid you in seeking compensation:

  • Proof that a third party’s absence or lack of action led to the wrongful death.
  • Proving the action taken by the at-fault that lead to fatal injuries with negligence or vicious intent involved.
  • Proving the financial toil the death of your loved one has taken on you and our family.

Laws concerning wrongful death vary and this will determine how much compensation you and your family will get. The factors that determine how much compensation you will get includes:

  • Last earning wage of your loved one.
  • Your financial dependency on your loved one.
  • The amount of funds your loved one saved
  • The total loss of companionship
  • The total costs that came after your loved one’s death

There is also a time limit to file a lawsuit for a wrongful death. If you plan to take legal action, we urge you to do it now.

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!
