    Wrongful Death Compensation in Tarzana

    California law applies to wrongful death claims in Tarzana. If your loved one dies because of the wrongful actions of another, the family may receive compensation.

    At this point, you may be wondering: What does it mean that a death is wrongful?

    Most wrongful deaths are accidents. It doesn’t mean the death happened on purpose. An accident can happen because someone doesn’t use reasonable care or caution. When someone loses their life as a result, the party who causes the accident through their negligence is legally responsible for paying for the consequences.

    Some examples of wrongful death claims are:

    • Car accidents
    • Motorcycle crashes
    • Truck and semi-truck accidents
    • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
    • Dangerous drugs (pharmaceutical)
    • Product defects and manufacturing malfunctions
    • Slip and falls, other premises liability, crushing and stuck-between accidents
    • Workplace accidents, construction incidents
    • Medical malpractice and misdiagnosis
    • Dog bites, animal attacks
    • Chemical and toxic poisoning
    • Boating accidents
    • Sporting, amusement, and recreation accidents

    The above is subject to change.

    Wrongful death claims are like other types of personal injury accidents in that they are the result of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of someone else. The victim may survive for a period of time after the accident. However, if the accident is the cause of their death, the family may bring a claim for wrongful death.

    What is a wrongful death claim?

    A wrongful death claim is a legal action for financial compensation. It is a civil case brought by the family of a victim. The purpose of the claim is to compensate the family for what happened as well as recognize the wrong that has occurred. The family must start the case. They may bring the case whether or not there is a traffic ticket or criminal charges issued because of what happened.

    Who may bring a wrongful death claim in Tarzana?

    California Code of Civil Procedure § 377.60 states who may bring a wrongful death claim in Tarzana:

    • Spouse
    • Domestic partner
    • Children
    • Children of deceased children
    • Parents
    • If no surviving victim, persons entitled by intestate succession
    • If parents are deceased, legal guardians
    • Putative spouse*
    • Children of putative spouse*
    • Stepchildren*
    • A minor that resided with the decedent for the previous 180 days and was dependent on the decedent at least half of their support

    *The person must prove they were dependent on the decedent.

    Our lawyers are happy to review your case to determine who may bring a wrongful death claim. Contact us for a consultation about your situation.

    What can I receive by bringing a wrongful death claim?

    A wrongful death claim cannot undo the harm that has occurred to your loved one. The compensation that you receive aims to reflect the severity of the loss for your family and the impact that it has had on your life. Our lawyers can help you identify damages in any of the following categories:

    • Outstanding medical bills
    • Funeral costs
    • Lost income
    • Lost household services and contributions
    • Value of unearned benefits like health insurance
    • Gifts or inheritance benefits
    • Pain and suffering that the victim and their loved ones experience
    • Loss of companionship, love, and guidance
    • Loss of relationship, sexual relations between spouses

    Each case is slightly different when it comes to valuing damages. However, any loss of a loved one is a catastrophic, devastating loss. Our lawyers fight aggressively for fair compensation.

    Marchelle Y

    Attorney Daneshrad is very professional and courteous. I called him after being involved in a rear ender. I didn’t know anything about anything when it came to the process for making a claim after a car accident. Everyone at his office including Jennifer did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care of.

    They made doctors appointments and regularly called to check-in on me. We ended up having to file a lawsuit. Three months after we did, attorney Daneshrad called me with great news! We had a settlement offer. It was for a lot more than I could have imagined. It has been three weeks since the settlement and he still calls me to check in on my injuries. You can tell he really cares about. He isn’t just about the numbers. Thank you attorney daneshrad! And happy holidays!
