Wrongful Death Attorney in Sacramento

Understand Your Legal Rights & Options

When a loved one is lost because of the negligence of another party, the surviving relatives have the right to file a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death lawsuit can seek damages from the liable party for burial costs, medical bills, lost wages, and even emotional distress.

  • In the state of California, wrongful death claims can be brought by:
  • Surviving spouse or children
  • A domestic partner
  • Parents, siblings, or children of deceased siblings
  • Anyone who is financially dependent on the deceased

When a wrongful death claim goes to trial in California, any damages awarded by the jury will be paid out in a single, lump sum. Eligible claimants must determine how that money is divided between themselves. If disputes arise, a separate civil judgment can be sought.
