What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death occurs when another person or entity’s negligence or willful act results in the fatality of one or more people. Under California law, the surviving spouse, domestic partner, or children who would be entitled to the property of the decedent by intestate succession can file a claim for wrongful death. A successful wrongful death claim can not only bring the at-fault party to justice, but it can also result in reimbursement for burial and funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and loss of future income.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death can happen almost anywhere and be caused by anyone, from multi-car pile-ups on public roads to workplace accidents arising from various safety violations.

Some of the most common causes of wrongful death include:

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death Claims?

The statute of limitations in California for wrongful death claims is two years from the date of death. However, if the cause of death isn’t obvious and is discovered at a later time, then the statute of limitations can be extended from the day the negligent act was discovered so the deceased’s family can file a wrongful death lawsuit.

If the wrongful death was caused by a government agency or government employee, then a tort claim must be filed within 6 months, otherwise, the case will be dismissed.
