A Summary of California's Wrongful Death Laws
California's wrongful death laws allow certain heirs, including the spouse, children, dependent stepchildren and dependent parents, to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If none of these relatives exist, parents, siblings and grandparents may file a claim. Our wrongful death attorneys will evaluate your unique situation and determine who is qualified to bring a wrongful death suit. The statute of limitations in a wrongful death lawsuit is two years from the date of your loved one's death, so it is important to act quickly.
