Seeking Justice for Wrongful Death?

Losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence is an unimaginable pain, and we understand the emotional and financial challenges that follow. At Coastline Law Firm, we specialize in wrongful death cases and are committed to guiding you through this difficult time.

Understanding Wrongful Death Claims in California

A wrongful death claim seeks damages for the loss of a loved one caused by another party’s negligence. In California, eligible individuals to file such a claim include:

  • Spouses and Domestic Partners: Entitled to compensation for future earnings and loss of companionship.

  • Children: Minors at the time of death can file for loss of financial support and parental guidance.

  • Parents: Able to file claims on behalf of their deceased child, whether a minor or adult.

  • Others: If no direct descendants survive, the right to file may extend to parents, siblings, and more, depending on the circumstances.

Additionally, those financially dependent on the deceased, including putative spouses, stepchildren, and legal guardians, may bring a wrongful death lawsuit.

Types of Damages

Eligible individuals may claim economic damages for funeral and medical expenses, lost wages, household services, and more. Non-economic damages can include compensation for the loss of love, companionship, and moral support.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Selecting the right attorney is crucial. When choosing a wrongful death attorney in California:

  • Experience and Track Record: Look for someone with a successful history in handling wrongful death cases.

  • Reputation: Seek an attorney with a good standing in the legal community.

  • Compassion: Your attorney should understand your pain and approach your case with empathy.

  • Communication: Choose an attorney who keeps you informed and is available for your questions.

  • Cost: Consider attorneys working on a contingency basis, ensuring you only pay if you win.
