Negligence

By definition, negligence is “the failure to use reasonable care, resulting in the damage, injury, or death of another.” All drivers must operate motor vehicles with proper reasonable care. If a driver does not operate his or her vehicle sensibly and someone is injured or dies, they can be held responsible.

Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit and can be filed if someone dies due to the negligence or wrongful act of someone else. If your loved one has been killed in a car accident due to the negligence of another, you have the right to file a claim. A wrongful death claim is typically filed by the surviving immediate family member(s) and is brought to court where damages are awarded when the case is won. Wrongful death claims in California have to be filed with the civil court within two years of the decedent’s death.

Damages

Monetary damages could include:

  1. Funeral and burial expenses
  2. Medical and hospital bills from the medical care the deceased received from the fatal car accident before he died
  3. Lost income
  4. The Loss of future income that the deceased would have received had they lived
  5. The value of household services (What the deceased contributed to the household that was not financial)
  6. Loss of love (pain and suffering)
