How is the value of a wrongful death claim determined?

Damages that can be recovered by filing wrongful death claims are split into two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic Damages
Economic damages are awarded to help families with verifiable financial costs that they have suffered or will suffer because of the death of a loved one. The following economic damages may be recovered by filing a wrongful death claim in California:

  • Funeral and burial costs, including travel and accommodations
  • Lost financial support that the victim would have contributed to the family
  • Gifts or benefits that the family member would have received from the victim
  • Medical costs incurred between the accident and the victim’s death
  • The reasonable value of household services that the victim would have provided

Non-Economic Damages
Non-economic damages are generally awarded to compensate families for the physical, emotional, and psychological injuries that they endure because of a family member’s death. Because the monetary value of these damages is difficult to determine, the amount of non-economic damages awarded can vary greatly. The following non-economic damages may be recovered by a filing a wrongful death claim in California:

  • The loss of the victim’s love, companionship, support, care, assistance, protection, affection, and comfort
  • The loss of the victim’s training and guidance
  • The loss of the enjoyment of sexual relations with the victim

 

How long do I have to file a wrongful death claim?

Generally, wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the accident that caused your loved one’s death. If a governmental entity is a cause of your loved one’s death, you may have to file a claim with the appropriate governmental entity within six months. Then you will have to file a lawsuit in a certain amount of time, depending on how the entity responds to the claim. These are strict time periods. If they are not adhered to, you will not be able to recover damages for your loss. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to make sure you do not lose the ability to bring your claim, and to start gathering evidence as soon as possible.
