What Constitutes Wrongful Death?

In California, wrongful death is determined based on several factors, including the cause of death, the relationship between the decedent and the parties involved, and the damages sustained by the surviving family members. Understanding what constitutes wrongful death is important, as it can help families pursue compensation for their losses.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

In California, those who can file a wrongful death claim are typically the surviving spouse, children, or domestic partner of the deceased. If none of these parties exist, other family members such as siblings or parents may file the claim.
