Wrongful death claim can be brought when victim not wage earner

The untimely death of a loved one is often considered a tragedy. Along with the grief and emotional turmoil the family is experiencing comes the questions of what happened and why. The California family is often left to struggle with what has happened. Depending upon the circumstances, it is possible that the individual who caused the death may face criminal charges. Separately, if the death was due to the negligence of another individual, the victim's family may decide to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Recovering damages in a wrongful death claim for emotional trauma

Losing a loved one is traumatic, but it can be especially difficult for California family if the death was the result of another person's negligence or reckless actions. Wrongful death claims cannot reverse what happened to your family member, but it may be an appropriate step for some grieving families. By successfully navigating a civil claim, you may be able to recover damages for some financial losses, as well as your emotional trauma.

Nursing homes and similar facilities carry a high level of responsibility. Families entrust such homes with their loved ones, usually when those loved ones are in a vulnerable state. When a California nursing home is accused of the wrongful death of a resident, it is cause for concern. When three facilities in one health care chain face such charges, one may suspect that an alarming pattern is occurring.

Some families find that filing a wrongful death claim for monetary damages in civil court is appropriate.
