Can I File A Wrongful Death Claim?

If you intend to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one who has passed away (“decedent”), California law, specifically the California Code of Civil Procedure, only allows the following individuals or entities to pursue a claim:

  • The decedent’s surviving spouse or surviving domestic partner
  • The decedent’s surviving children or surviving grandchildren of deceased children
  • The decedent’s legal heirs if the decedent had no will
  • The decedent’s putative spouse, children of putative spouse, stepchildren, or parents
  • A minor who resided with the decedent for the previous 180 days in decedent’s household and was dependent on the decedent for one-half or more of the minor’s support
  • A personal representative of the decedent

Unfortunately, even though it may seem obvious that another person is liable for the death of your loved one, you will have difficulty with the insurance companies during the wrongful death claims process. This is where our team at Yaghmai Law Firm, APC can help you.

We know the tactics which insurance companies and defendants use in these cases to reduce their liability. Insurance adjusters will try to trick you into making a recorded statement that they will surely use against you later.  The insurance company and insurance adjuster are not your friends.  Despite the validity of your claim and despite your subjective belief that you are a fair person, the insurance companies will do anything in their power to not pay you and your family what you deserve.  You must consult with an experienced wrongful death attorney before even considering accepting any settlement offer and you should never volunteer information to the insurance adjuster.  

The team at Yaghmai Law Firm, APC is here to answer your questions and guide you through the entire claim process. We represent clients in all aspects of their wrongful death lawsuit, such as:

  • We communicate with the insurance company so they cannot take advantage of you;
  • We conduct a thorough investigation into the facts of your case;
  • We collect and preserve evidence before it is lost or destroyed; 
  • We contact eyewitnesses to get their statements;
  • We protect the wrongful death statute of limitations in California, generally 2 years;
  • We file any necessary wrongful death lawsuit to pursue the claim.

Our Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer will aggressively fight to get you full justice for your loved one’s tragic death and make sure your claim is protected within the legally allowed amount of time.

 

How Much Is My Wrongful Death Settlement Worth?

Nobody can put a dollar figure on the value of a life.  All human beings are priceless and inherently have their own intangible worth.  No lawyer can guarantee a particular result for your case in California.  It is against our rules of professional conduct, however, it is important to recognize the multitude of factors that may affect the outcome of your claim and the amount of money you are able to recover, such as:

  • The cost of the medical bills your loved one incurred from injury until death;
  • The future financial support your loved one would have provided;
  • The value of household services your loved one would have provided;
  • The value of gifts your loved one would have given his/her heirs;
  • The cost of burial and funeral costs;
  • Your pain and suffering;
  • Your emotional distress;
  • Your loss of consortium;
  • And more…
