When a family loses a loved one, the ripple effects on the family go far beyond their immediate grief and anguish, especially when the death is sudden and preventable. After dealing with the tragedy of the death, family members often find themselves quickly facing financial hardship from the loss of a provider or the loss of someone who took care of the home and children. When the death occurred due to another party’s careless, reckless, or violent actions, a wrongful death claim from surviving family members can help them move forward with fewer financial concerns so they can focus on their grief.

If your loved one died a wrongful death in Poway, call the dedicated client advocates at Haffner & Morgan today so we can begin an individualized strategy to recover your financial losses from the party at fault for the death.

Who Can File California Wrongful Death Claims?

Like all states, California limits those who can file wrongful death claims to close family members who suffer financial impacts from the death. In California, the following family members may file a wrongful death claim when another person or business caused the death through careless or reckless actions:

  • A spouse or domestic partner
  • Children
  • Parents

Only in cases of a deceased individual with no spouse, children, or living parents can the sibling of the decedent file a wrongful death claim.

What Damages Can I Recover In a Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death has many consequences, including economic and non-economic impacts. These consequences are known as “damages” in a wrongful death claim in California. Common damages recovered in wrongful death claims in Poway include the following:

  • Medical expenses incurred before the death
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost income during bereavement leave
  • The amount of income the decedent would have earned in their remaining working years had they survived
  • Loss of healthcare benefits
  • Loss of retirement contributions
  • Grief and anguish
  • Loss of support and guidance, and/or loss of companionship and consortium

A skilled attorney carefully calculates the damages after a wrongful death to maximize the amount of compensation family members can recover.
