What Damages Are Available in Wrongful Death Claims?

Under California law, a wrongful death claim arises when it is caused by the negligence or misconduct of another individual or company. Wrongful deaths may happen in a variety of ways, including in vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, by defective consumer products, and more. While no amount of money can bring back a loved one, it can significantly help surviving family members get through a difficult time and minimize their future financial stresses.

Some of the compensation that can be recovered through a wrongful death claim includes:

  • The decedent's future anticipated earnings
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Medical expenses relating to the final illness or injury
  • Lost benefits of the victim, including medical insurance, pension, 401k, and more
  • Loss of companionship, care, or protection as a result of the death
  • Survivor's pain, suffering, and mental anguish

Following the death of a loved one, surviving family members rarely have legal action on their mind, and many do not know where to start. However, it is important to contact a Palm Springs wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Due to a statute of limitations in California, there are time limits placed on when a wrongful death claim may be filed.

Our team can quickly begin work on your case by investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident, gathering and preserving evidence, interviewing witnesses, consulting with experts, and anything else to strengthen your claim.
