When the loss of a loved one is caused by another’s carelessness or wrongdoing, surviving family members may experience a profound sense of injustice. They may feel hopeless and frustrated, full of grief. While there is no way to replace the loss of a family member or other loved one, taking legal action can help bring peace of mind. Holding the responsible party accountable can increase awareness of the Wrongful Death and to help prevent others from suffering the same fate.

At Pacific Attorney Group, we handle wrongful death lawsuits for clients across California. If you lost a spouse, parent, child or other family member or loved one because another person was careless, negligent or intentionally caused harm, an attorney at our firm may be able to help you seek justice and compensation for your losses. Our wrongful death attorneys take on cases involving auto accidents, defective products, dangerous drugs, medical malpractice, workplace accidents and more.
Wrongful death actions are covered in detail in California Code of Civil Procedure § 377.60. According to this law, there are specific parties that may be able to take legal action for the loss of a loved one. This may include a surviving spouse, domestic partner or child of the victim. In some cases, a parent may be able to file a wrongful death action. A case of this kind may be brought against another party for a wrongful death caused by negligence or intentional wrongdoing. Wrongful death cases can also be brought on the principle of strict liability, as in cases involving defective products.
Through a wrongful death action, a party responsible for the death of a person may be held accountable for their conduct. Because these cases are brought in civil court, the defendant (person/entity accused of causing another’s death) will not face incarceration or other criminal penalties but will typically face monetary penalties.
