California Wrongful Death Law
Under California wrongful death laws, only the “heirs” and “dependents” of the victim are authorized to seek damages for the wrongful death of the decedent. This person is often referred to as a “claimant”.
A claimant in a Los Angeles wrongful death lawsuit may seek compensation for:
- The Loss of Love
- Moral Support of the Decedent
- Financial Support
- Household Services
By their nature, Los Angeles wrongful death lawsuits are very complex, emotional, and divisive. In Los Angeles, motor vehicle accidents are the most common type of wrongful death occurrences. McFarlin LLP can make this difficult situation a little easier by taking care of all legal and financial aspects of your wrongful death claim in an efficient and caring manner.
