    California Wrongful Death Lawyer

    Wrongful Death Cases

    Compassionate Representation With A Proven Record

    No amount of money can ever replace the horrific pain of losing a loved one in a wrongful death accident. However, the medical bills prior to death, loss of income upon the death of a provider, and funeral expenses can leave families in an unexpected financial bind.

    No one should need to worry about these costs in the wake of tragedy. That is why MVP Accident Attorneys wants to help you. While you mourn and recover from your loss, we can seek a maximum payout on your behalf. We have an established reputation in California and Texas.

    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.

    What Damages Are Available?

    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
    • The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases in California is two years so take action today to obtain justice for your loved one. Reach out to the dedicated attorneys of MVP Accident Attorneys today by calling (833) MVP-WINS.
