Damages in Wrongful Death Actions
In California, a surviving spouse, domestic partner, child, grandchild, parent, or dependent may be able to file a wrongful death action. This must be done within 2 years of the incident, or within 3 years if medical malpractice was involved. If a government entity is being sued, you will have only 6 months to file a claim. Taking immediate action is highly recommended, as it can positively impact the outcome of your case and can help you avoid an expired statute of limitations.
There are economic and non-economic damages that may be awarded, and our Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers pursue maximum compensation for our clients, including:
- Medical expenses
- Financial support that the deceased would have contributed
- Funeral and burial costs
- Household or other services that the deceased would have provided
- Loss of the deceased’s love, companionship, attention, and support
- Loss of affection and sexual relations with the deceased (for spouses or domestic partners)
- Loss of guidance and upbringing (of the deceased’s children or other heirs)
Let’s work together to seek justice for your loved one. Contact our firm at (888) 487-8133 to get started.
