You can act as the plaintiff in a wrongful death lawsuit in the state of California if you had a familial relationship with the deceased, including:
  • Spouse
  • Child
  • Domestic partner
  • Grandchild (if the deceased’s children are also deceased)
  • Other minors who depended on the deceased for at least 50% of financial support (such as a stepchild)

You also have the right to sue for wrongful death if you had a legal claim to the deceased’s estate according to California’s intestate succession laws.

Damages are another word for compensation won in a personal injury claim. Different states have different laws regarding what can be recovered and how much. Wrongful death damages in California can be broken up into two categories. Damages paid to the deceased estate and damages paid to surviving family members.

Damages paid to the estate typically cover:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical and/or hospital bills associated with their passing
  • Lost income or potential income the deceased would have earned if they had survived

Damages paid to surviving family members typically include:

  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of love, guidance, and community
  • Value of household service
