Who Can File a Wrongful Death Case in California?

In California, the law limits the number and type of people who can file a claim for wrongful death. For example, if your neighbor dies in a Long Beach car accident and you suspect someone’s negligent actions caused the death, you can’t file a wrongful death claim, no matter how close you were with your neighbor.

The following are the people permitted under California law to file a claim or lawsuit for a fatal accident.

  • The spouse or domestic partner
  • Surviving children of the deceased
  • Grandchildren

If none of these are living at the time of death, then others may file, such as parents, siblings, and dependents. Your Long Beach wrongful death attorney can let you know if you qualify to file a fatal accident claim in California.

What Are the Benefits of Filing a Long Beach Wrongful Death Claim?

Most people submit wrongful death claims for several reasons.

One, you probably want the person who caused the wrongful death to be held accountable. Two, you might be dedicated to protecting others from suffering the same fate as your loved one.
