A wrongful death occurs when someone is killed because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, entity, or faulty product
Surviving family members of people who died from a wrongful death can file claims in order to receive compensation for their losses and suffering. These damages may include punitive fines if the wrongful death was caused intentionally or maliciously.
Compensation for wrongful death often includes monetary compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, anticipated earnings of the deceased (even if the deceased was not working at the time of his or her death), loss of benefits, loss of inheritance, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of care and companionship, and any other losses incurred because of the death. Contact us today so that our expert wrongful death attorneys will make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
Every state has a complicated set of time limits, known as “statutes of limitation” surrounding wrongful death claims
These statutes limit time between the death and the day the claim is filed. In general, most California wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within one or two years of the death. If the police or another government organization killed the deceased wrongfully, then the statute of limitations is usually much less.
Wrongful death statutes vary by state and the specific circumstances of the case
Cases involving wrongful death of children may have extended statutes of limitations. In cases where the proximate cause of death was not discovered until sometime after the death, the statute of limitations may also be extended, especially if there are unique and special circumstances surrounding the death. As you can see, such legal cases can be complicated and confusing to non-legal people; we can help you.
It is important to note that even if there is a great deal of available evidence showing that the death was caused by the direct negligence of another, but the statute of limitations has passed, usually the case cannot be tried or even filed in a court of law. These limitations are important to pay attention to in wrongful death cases. Once the time limit passes, no lawsuit or charge may be filed. Make sure to contact us as soon as possible so that you do not miss out on your chance to get fair compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one.
Generally speaking, wrongful death claims must be filed by, or in the name of, a surviving spouse, children, or some other dependent or beneficiary.
