The definition of wrongful death according to California law is a fatal injury that results from another person’s wrongful act or negligence. If your loved one passed away due to injuries you suspect someone should have prevented, your family may have grounds for a wrongful death suit in La Mesa. A family in California may bring a civil wrongful death suit using the deceased person’s surviving spouse, domestic partner, child or someone else entitled to benefits through intestate succession as the plaintiff.
The plaintiff has a time limit of two years from the date of the deceased person’s death to file a civil lawsuit in the State of California. Two years is California’s statute of limitations on all wrongful death claims, with limited exceptions. Act quickly to ensure you do not miss your deadline. A successful wrongful death lawsuit could result in financial compensation for your family’s funeral and burial expenses, outstanding medical costs, lost income, lost future income and inheritance, the value of lost household services, loss of consortium, and more. You may also qualify for compensation for your mental anguish and emotional distress.
