Can I file a wrongful death lawsuit claim?

In California, only certain family members are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit, including:

  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Grandparents
  • Dependents

It is important that all persons who want to file for an action for a particular person must file all at once. To avoid leaving anybody out of the suit, the family members that file suit must inform all heirs of their intention to do so.

Who qualifies as a victim for a wrongful death lawsuit?

In order to qualify as a wrongful death victim, the person must have died as a result of someone else's substantial involvement in wrongful negligence.

Wrongful death claims exclude:

  • Justifiable homicide (persons killed while committing a crime)
  • Suicide (persons who killed themselves)
  • Unborn child or fetus (under wrongful death statute, not considered persons until after live birth)
