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
- 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
