Looking For a Wrongful Death Lawyer in Riverside California
Losing a loved one is never easy, but it can be especially traumatic to lose someone due to the reckless or careless actions of another. If you are dealing with the financial and emotional consequences of losing someone you love due to the wrongful actions of someone else, a Riverside wrongful death lawsuit by a Riverside wrongful death attorney may entitle you to damages.
WHAT IS A RIVERSIDE WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?
In California, the death of a close family member — which usually includes a spouse, child, or parent — due to the negligence or recklessness of someone else entitles surviving family members to file a wrongful death claim. To file a claim, you must be able to show you suffered a financial and/or emotional hardship as a result of the loss.
Wrongful death claims are civil matters, which means they are not handled by the criminal court. Defendants may be brought before the criminal and civil court for causing a death, however.
Wrongful death lawsuits may be filed due to many situations, including:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Auto accidents
- Train accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Construction accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Dog attacks
DAMAGES IN A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM IN RIVERSIDE
A wrongful death claim in California can be very complicated, which makes it important to have the experience of a wrongful death attorney in Riverside working for you. As a survivor, you may file a wrongful death lawsuit to potentially recover three forms of damages:
- Loss of companionship, affection, moral support, and consortium.
- Value of household services the decedent would have provided.
- Value of financial support the decedent would have provided.
California law dictates only certain people may file a wrongful death claim. First in line are the surviving spouse, children, and surviving children of the decedent’s deceased children. Survivors can file a claim separately or jointly.
If there are no survivors who fit into this category, next in line are parents, followed by siblings, children of deceased siblings, then grandparents. A second group of claimants may include putative spouses (or those who can prove they were married but not by law), children of a putative spouse, and step-children. Individuals in the second group can only file a wrongful death claim if they can show they were dependent upon the decedent.
