Los Angeles Wrongful Death Attorney
Providing Compassionate, Personalized Legal Representation
There is nothing more difficult than losing a loved one unexpectedly. Knowing that your loved one’s death could have and should have been prevented can make the healing process even harder. While no amount of financial recovery can ever make up for your loss, pursuing a wrongful death action against the liable party can bring you a sense of justice and ease the unanticipated financial burdens associated with the loss of a family member.
If your loved one died as a result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions, Saeedian Law Group can help. Our Beverly Hills wrongful death attorney understands what you are going through; our firm is here to guide you through the legal process and handle every aspect of your claim so that you can focus on healing and spending time with your loved ones.
Damages in Wrongful Death Claims
The loss of a family member or loved one is an incredibly difficult thing to endure. Unfortunately, surviving family members are often left to deal with not only the immense emotional consequences of such a loss but myriad financial burdens, as well.
If your loved one required medical treatment prior to his or her death, you could be left facing enormous medical bills. Funerals and memorial services typically cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. And, if you were financially dependent on your loved one, you now face the overwhelming obstacle of securing enough income to pay your bills, make your rent or mortgage payments, buy food, send your children to school, and take care of life’s countless other monetary needs.
At Saeedian Law Group, we can help you seek compensation for your damages by bringing a wrongful death claim against the liable party. These damages vary, but typically include:
- Medical expenses incurred prior to death
- Burial/funeral costs or cremation costs
- Lost income, including loss of expected income
- The value of household services
- Loss of love/affection
- Loss of support (financial, emotional, and otherwise)
- Loss of community and attention
In California, only certain individuals may bring a wrongful death claim. These individuals include the surviving spouse or domestic partner of the deceased, the surviving children (if any) of the deceased, and anyone in the direct line of descent of the deceased. If no such person exists, anyone who would legally be entitled to receive an inheritance/property from the deceased’s estate may bring a claim. Additionally, anyone who can prove that they were financially dependent on the deceased at the time of his or her death can bring a wrongful death claim in California.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in California
According to California Code of Civil Procedure 377.60 those permitted to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one are a surviving spouse or domestic partner, or children of the deceased. If none of the above exist, anyone entitled to the deceased’s property can file a claim, this can include the deceased’s parents or siblings.
Additionally, the following people can file a claim if they were financially dependent on the deceased
- The punitive spouse of the deceased and their children
- Stepchildren of the deceased
- Parents of the deceased.
