Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in California?

When someone dies in a preventable accident, his or her surviving family members may have the right to file a compensation-seeking lawsuit against the party responsible for causing the accident. Liable parties may include careless drivers, negligent employers, and manufacturers of dangerous products, to name a few examples.

California law states that the following people may file a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • Spouses/domestic partners
  • Children and grandchildren of the deceased
  • Stepchildren or parents who were dependent on the deceased for support

What Damages are Available in California Wrongful Death Lawsuits?

A successful California wrongful death lawsuit may provide compensation for the following damages:

  • Funeral & burial expenses
  • Lost future income the deceased person would have earned
  • Lost benefits, such as 401(k) or medical benefits
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain & suffering of surviving family members

In cases involving particularly egregious instances of negligence, punitive damages may also be available. These damages are meant to punish the defendant for their carelessness and deter further misconduct in the future.
