Wrongful death refers to circumstances where an individual’s death is caused by the negligent, reckless, or deliberate actions of another party. This can happen in several situations, such as vehicle collisions, medical errors, accidents at work, faulty products, mistreatment in nursing homes, and criminal activities. In California, particular statutes regulate wrongful death lawsuits, outlining eligible claimants and the types of compensatory damages that can be sought.

Wrongful Death Claims

Economic Damages

These are tangible losses that have a specific monetary value associated with them. Economic damages include medical expenses incurred due to the injury leading to death, funeral and burial costs, loss of the deceased’s expected earnings, loss of benefits (like health insurance and pension plans), and the value of the goods and services the deceased would have provided.

Non-Economic Damages

These are intangible losses that don’t have a fixed monetary value but are nonetheless significant. Non-economic damages can include the survivors’ pain and suffering, loss of companionship, affection, guidance, marital consortium, and emotional support. Quantifying these damages can be challenging and often requires expert testimony.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages differ from economic and non-economic damages in that they serve to penalize the offender and discourage similar actions in the future rather than to compensate the victim’s family. Not all wrongful death cases qualify for punitive damages; they are usually granted when there is evidence of especially reckless or intentional misconduct.

Survival Actions

While not a category of damages per se, survival actions allow for the recovery of damages that the deceased could have claimed if they had survived. This might include compensation for pain and suffering endured by the deceased from the time of injury until the time of death and medical expenses incurred during that period. The proceeds from survival actions typically go to the deceased’s estate.
