Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
California's wrongful death laws allow certain heirs to file a wrongful death claim. These heirs include a spouse, children, dependent stepchildren and dependent parents. If none of these relatives exist, other family members are permitted to file a claim, including non-dependent parents, siblings, and grandparents.
In addition to this law, 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. Our wrongful death attorneys will evaluate your unique situation and determine who is qualified to bring a wrongful death suit.
We Understand the Importance of a Detailed Investigation
We will take immediate steps to investigate your accident, preserve evidence and consult with family members on insurer's denial of claims and other important issues. We frequently work with accident reconstructionists who will provide expert testimony as to the cause of your loved one's accident.
