San Diego Wrongful Death Attorneys

Wrongful death litigation seeks to protect the families of victims who die due to another’s negligent or wrongful actions. From a legal standpoint, the term wrongful death is used to describe a claim for compensation brought by a victim’s family against a wrongdoer and/or insurance company. Wrongful death cases can arise in numerous ways including automobile accidents, deaths occurring while on a work site, defective products, slip and falls, or medical negligence.

To be successful in a wrongful death claim, you must show that:
  • The death was caused in whole or in part by the conduct of the defendant;
  • That the defendant was negligent or strictly liable; and
  • That surviving family members or beneficiaries were damaged by the wrongful death.

No amount of money will adequately compensate you for the loss of a loved one. However, money is the only means available to lessen the burden placed upon you by the actions of the wrongdoer. Compensable losses could include the financial benefits you would have received from the decedent such as food, clothing and shelter, financial contributions the decedent would have made to or for your benefit, loss of household services, and funeral expenses. You could also be entitled to damages for a proven loss of love, companionship, comfort, affection, society, solace and moral support.
