What is California's Wrongful Death Law?

Certain eligible family members of a decedent have the right to file a lawsuit in a civil court to seek damages for pain, suffering, and loss of income. We understand the California wrongful death laws and can help you fully understand how California's Code of Civil Procedure §§377.60 - 377.62 can impact your case and benefit your family's present circumstance.

Wrongful death claims can be brought against the at-fault party by a personal representative or by any of the following eligible family members of the decedent, including:

  • Surviving spouse
  • Domestic partner
  • Children
  • Legal guardian of deceased child
  • The following parties who were dependent on the decedent: putative spouse, children of the putative spouse, stepchildren, or parents

One of the primary goals of a wrongful death lawsuit is to recover damages so that the surviving family members can obtain full and fair compensation for the damages they incurred. While compensation will always vary from case to case, courts will generally award surviving relatives compensation in the form of economic damages, noneconomic damages, and – in some cases – punitive damages.
