A wrongful death incident can shatter someone’s life within moments. Wrongful death occurs when the negligence or willful act of another person or persons results in the fatality of an individual or individuals. Wrongful death has lasting effects on all persons involved and their families, including emotional distress and financial hardship. Wrongful death can happen due to varying circumstances, including car or truck accidents, aviation accidents, construction site accidents and railroad mass transit accidents.
Seeking the proper guidance in a wrongful death case can help families understand the legal process. For example:
- There may be a statute of limitations for pursuing the claim in California
- Survivors, such as the spouse, domestic partner, offspring or next of kin, can pursue a claim
- Damages may be claimed based on financial hardship, emotional stress and sometimes punitive damages
