Do you have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit for a crash?

There are a number of factors that contribute to the risk of fatal crashes in California. The size of your vehicle can impact how much protection you receive if another driver causes a crash. Impairment, distraction or exhaustion in the other driver could also increase your risks of serious injury or death.

For those who have already lost a loved one to a tragic traffic accident, emotional and financial turmoil is common. Thankfully, the California wrongful death statute allow your family to recoup some of the losses related to a deadly collision.

Wrongful death lawsuits let your family pursue justice

Even in situations where there is not sufficient evidence of a crime, you may have grounds for a successful wrongful death lawsuit. even in situations where there is not sufficient evidence of a crime, you may have grounds for a successful wrongful death lawsuit. The burden of proof for a civil suit is lower than what is required for a criminal conviction.

If you have reason to believe that driver negligence or a wrongful act contributed to the fatal crash, that could mean the potential for a wrongful death lawsuit. You will have the option to seek compensation for a number of losses, including property damage, medical cough, funeral expenses and lost wages.

While winning a judgment against the other driver won't undo the damage the crash caused your family, it can offset the financial consequences of the loss. It can also provide you with a sense of justice, because the other driver gets held accountable for the results of his or her actions.
