When you have suffered the tragic loss of a loved one through the negligence or fault of someone else, it’s extremely important to have experienced trial lawyers on your side who are familiar with the handling of these kinds of cases. In addition to the questions of the other party’s liability and the potential monetary damages you may be entitled to recover, California law also limits which family members may bring a wrongful death claim or lawsuit.
Your specific family relationship to the decedent may also directly affect what kind of monetary damages you can recover. For example, a spouse and a minor child would normally be able to recover not only for the loss of the love, comfort and companionship of the decedent, but also for the loss of any future earnings the decedent may have earned because they were financially dependent on that future income.
On the other hand, someone like an adult child who lived away from home and was not dependent on the decedent for any financial support, would ordinarily be limited to recovering only for the loss of the love and affection of his parent. He could not recovery any damages for the decedent’s loss of future earnings because he was not dependent on the decedent for financial support.
