What Is A Wrongful Death Claim?

The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to compensate family members when someone’s negligent or intentional conduct results in a loved one’s untimely death. A wrongful death suit can help families manage the financial burdens these situations cause. Unlike a criminal case, which is intended to bring justice to the family members and punish the offender, a wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action meant to provide financial compensation and relief. In California, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate or his heirs can typically file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Compensation in A Fallbrook Wrongful Death Case

Compensation in a wrongful death case will vary based on the facts. Generally, you may be able to recover compensatory damages and exemplary damages.

  • Compensatory damages cover both economic and non-economic losses. An example of an economic loss is lost income, property damage, and medical expenses, while a non-economic injury would involve intangible – but equally devastating – losses like the emotional trauma, distress, and pain and suffering stemming from a loss.
  • Exemplary damages are applied in a few unique circumstances when the other party’s conduct was particularly outlandish and egregious. By their nature, many wrongful death cases involve claims for exemplary damages. Your lawyer will help you decide whether you should raise one in your case.
