What is a wrongful death lawsuit?

A wrongful death happens because of another person's negligence or actions. A wrongful death lawsuit is a claim against that person who may be liable for the death.

Most cases are filed by a close relative. California law provides for financial damages to be recovered. These include all financial support, past and future, provided by the decedent before death, funeral and burial expenses. Non-economic damages, such as the loss of your loved one's companionship, love and affection can also be recovered.

If you have lost a family member because of someone else's actions, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney regarding your options.

Depending on the nature of the case, California law states that a wrongful death action must be filed within two years of the date of the death - other time periods apply to other cases. Your attorney will know how long you have to file.
