A wrongful death & survivor action is a lawsuit filed on behalf of the surviving family members or beneficiaries of a deceased person and the Decedent's estate seeking to recover damages from those responsible for the death. These lawsuits can be drawn out for a significant amount of time as the negligent party fights responsibility.
It is important that you work with an attorney who has the legal understanding and the resources needed to prove negligence by the responsible parties, deliver results, and a sense of closure to the family.
A wrongful death claim can compensate a family for the losses that they have suffered because of the death. Compensation can include economic damages (like the loss of financial support and the value of household services to the family) and non-economic damages (the loss of the person’s companionship, love, and emotional support).
Another type of claim is called a survivorship claim brought pursuant to the California Code of Civil Procedure §377.30. This is brought on behalf of the deceased person's estate for the losses suffered after the accident while the person was still alive. These damages may include expenses such as ambulance bills, medical treatments, and lost income while the deceased was in the hospital.
