    Santa Ana Wrongful Death Lawyer

    There's nothing more difficult than losing a loved one. This tragedy is worsened when the death was preventable and was caused due to the negligence of another person or entity.

    In a wrongful death lawsuit, a wrongful death lawyer Santa Ana from MVP Accident Attorneys will work hard to hold negligent parties responsible and obtain just and fair compensation on behalf of the victim's family members.

    Claims and Damages in Wrongful Death Cases

    If a loved one died due to another person's negligence, a wrongful death attorney from MVP Accident Attorneys will investigate your case, working diligently to obtain full compensation for your loss.

    Compensation in most wrongful death claims can cover items such as:

    • Medical bills
    • Lost earnings for support of a spouse or child
    • Burial and funeral costs

    And more.

    Additionally, when a loved one dies in a preventable accident, the surviving family members may suffer significant non-economic losses. Compensation for non-economic losses can include loss of guidance and support, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering.

    How a Wrongful Death Lawyer Can Help

    The family of the decedent faces the stress of trying to move on with their lives. Often, they don't get the time they need to grieve, and holding those responsible for the loss of their loved one can be a secondary concern.

    We know that no amount of money can make up for the loss of your loved one, however, it can ease the financial burden experienced after the death, helping you to cover expenses and lost wages.

    Who Can Sue for Wrongful Death in Santa Ana CA?

    In the state of California, the following family members can file a lawsuit for wrongful death:

    • Domestic partners
    • Surviving spouses
    • Children
    • Grandchildren
    • Other minor children who were dependent on the deceased for 50% of their financial support
    • Anyone else who was entitled to the decedent’s property

    Statute of Limitations

    In California, family members will have two years from the date of the death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If this time frame is exceeded the court may dismiss the claim. This means the surviving family members will be unable to seek compensation for their losses.

    Because these cases are so complex, an attorney needs as much time as possible to investigate the case and file the proper paperwork. Time is of the essence. While filing a lawsuit is probably not the first thing on your mind, it's important to not put it off. You must give your attorney as much time as possible to conduct an in-depth investigation and build a strong case that can hold the at-fault party liable for their negligent or reckless actions.

    Proving Negligence

    In a California wrongful death lawsuit, the family members must successfully provide what's known as the burden of proof to indicate that the negligent party caused the death of the victim. This means the family must prove the following:

    • The defendant had a duty of care to the decedent
    • The defendant failed to provide the duty of care by a negligent or reckless act
    • The negligent or reckless act was the cause of the victim's death
    • The extent of harm that was caused by the negligent or reckless act

    Unlike a murder case, where evidence needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the guilt of the defendant, in a wrongful death lawsuit, the family members only need evidence to show that the defendant more likely than not caused the victim's death.
