What is a wrongful death claim?

Wrongful death can be defined as a death that occurs from someone else’s negligence.  For example, this type of legal claim might arise when a drunk driver, careless trucker or defective product, causes a death.

In California, a surviving family member, such as a spouse or child, may be able to pursue damages in a wrongful death lawsuit.  The compensation from this type of case could include future financial support, funeral and burial expenses, reasonable value of household services, loss of the victim’s love, loss of the enjoyment of sexual relations and loss of gifts or benefits.

There are many factors involved in a wrongful death case and it is best to consult with an experienced lawyer for answers to your questions.
