At Selarz Law Corp., we help the surviving family members and loved ones of those wrongfully killed seek justice in the form of wrongful death lawsuits.

What Makes a Death “Wrongful?”

In the eyes of the law, whenever a death occurs as a result of another party’s careless, reckless, negligent, or wrongful actions or inactions, that death is considered “wrongful.” In short, wrongful deaths are preventable deaths.

Some of the most common causes of wrongful deaths include:

In severe cases, slip and fall and other premises liability incidents can also lead to fatal injuries. Regardless of how the situation occurred, if you believe your loved one’s death was caused by someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions, you may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit.

Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in California?

State law stipulates that only certain individuals may bring a wrongful death lawsuit. These individuals include, in order:

  • The deceased’s spouse
  • The deceased’s domestic partner
  • The deceased’s children

If there is no surviving spouse, domestic partner, or child, anyone who stands to inherit property/assets from the deceased’s estate through intestate succession can bring a wrongful death claim. This may include the deceased’s parents, siblings, and others. Additionally, if they can show that they were dependent on the deceased, the surviving “putative” spouse and/or children, surviving stepchildren, and/or the surviving parents can bring a claim.
