A wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the negligence of another person. Wrongful death cases are civil cases, meaning they can occur alongside of criminal cases, even if authorities clear the negligent individual of their criminal charges. The standard of proof for wrongful death cases is lower than in a criminal case, requiring only that the situation was more likely than not to have occurred. The purpose of a wrongful death case is for the deceased person's loved ones to receive compensation for the economic damages they endured and will endure in the future.
A loved one's death is extraordinarily painful. While you are grieving, you should not have to worry about how to financially support your family. No amount of money can replace your loved one and make up for the pain you suffered, and the negligent individual who caused the wrongful death of your loved one must be held accountable. At Amerio Law Firm, our skilled wrongful death attorneys will do everything possible to get you the compensation you deserve by holding the negligent person who caused your loved one's death accountable.
According to California law, the surviving spouse, domestic partner, children, or other person entitled to the property of the deceased has a cause of action for a wrongful death case.
