How Common is Wrongful Death in California?

  • Nov 30 2018

Death is a fact of life. However, sometimes the death of a person is the fault of someone else. In these cases, known as wrongful death cases, the law recognizes that in wrongful death cases the person who caused the death should be held accountable. While criminal law addresses cases where someone intentionally caused the death of another, civil law is more often used to address situations where someone negligently caused the death of another through their careless actions.

In California, you are able to file a civil wrongful death lawsuit in these situations if you meet the eligibility requirements.

If you were a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident and you sustained injuries as a result of that accident, you likely have many questions about whether you can sue and who you can sue.
