Damages for Wrongful Death in California

At TopDogLaw Personal Injury Lawyers, we fully commit to helping our clients pursue the compensation they deserve in wrongful death cases.

Some examples of damages that can be pursued include;

  • Economic Damages – These tangible damages seek to mitigate the consequences directly resulting from the loss, covering areas such as support, inaccessible benefits, funeral expenses, and medical costs associated with the fatal incident.
  • Non-economic Damages – These intangible costs cover losses such as the loss of companionship, love, care, or guidance. They also address the pain and suffering experienced by surviving family members and the overall impact on their quality of life.
  • Punitive Damages – In cases where the defendant’s actions are reckless or intentional, the court may impose additional punitive damages to deter similar behavior in the future.

By examining all potential insurance coverage options and skillful negotiation with adjusters, we are well-prepared to advocate for a possible settlement or court judgment on your behalf.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in California?

To file a wrongful death claim in California, you must be a surviving spouse or domestic partner or one of the children who relied on the deceased for at least 50 percent of their financial support.

How Does the Law Distribute the Funds?

In death settlements, damages are distributed equally among beneficiaries. However, a larger portion is typically allocated to surviving spouses and/or children while other parties divide the remaining amount amongst themselves.

  • Seeking punitive damages in cases involving clear evidence of severe conduct
