A wrongful death claim generally consists of four key elements:

  1. The death was caused, in whole or part, by the conduct of the defendant.
  2. The defendant was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death.
  3. There are surviving family members, dependents, or beneficiaries.
  4. Monetary damages have resulted from the victim’s death.

Under California law, wrongful death damages fall under 2 of the following categories:

Economic damages – Financial losses, which include:

  • Property damage
  • Loss of income/earning capacity
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Household services the lost loved one would have provided
  • Other related expenses impacted by the wrongful conduct

Non-Economic damages – More difficult to calculate, and vary by individual and case because there is no fixed method for calculating these damages, which include:

  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of love
  • Companionship
  • Care, protection
