What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
A wrongful death lawsuit is essentially a personal injury lawsuit brought by surviving family members of a deceased person on his or her behalf. In California, parties who may file a wrongful death lawsuit include surviving spouses, domestic partners, children, parents, and siblings. In order for the lawsuit to be successful, the plaintiff will have to prove that the death was caused by the defendant’s negligent or intentional actions. This is where a qualified lawyer at BD&J can help. When you retain one of our lawyers, we can investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of your loved one and uncover evidence that can be used to support your case, including medical documents, police reports, and more.
Our goal is to get you a fair recovery for all of your losses, including:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Costs of medical care prior to the death
- Loss of financial support and benefits
- Loss of companionship
- And more

We understand that you are going through an extremely challenging time and that legal action may currently be the furthest thing from your mind. Remember, however, that California places a 2-year statute of limitations on wrongful death cases, so time is limited to file a lawsuit. When you choose BD&J to represent you, we will work hard to lift the burden you are currently facing by guiding you through every step of the process. Driven by a genuine compassion for helping people in a time of need, our attorneys are ready to help you obtain the justice — and sense of closure — you need to move forward.
