Wrongful Death: When you need a Los Angeles Wrongful Death Lawyer


Before contacting a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer or a lawyer referral service, the first and most important step is to educate yourself. If you do not know the answer to the following question, definitely read on: What is a Wrongful Death case?


A wrongful death case is one which is brought by the survivor(s) of someone who is killed as a result of someone else’s actions.


It could be a death caused by a car accident, medical malpractice, mesothelioma, nursing home abuse, or many other causes. The point is that the case is brought by the survivor(s), such as a wife, a husband, children, etc., and not by the person who was wrongfully killed. So the first issue in a wrongful death case is WHO are the correct persons to include in the wrongful death case.


Additionally, it is important to consult a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer who is an expert in wrongful death cases because there are very specific requirements concerning who the court will recognize as the proper person to file the wrongful death case on behalf of the person who died.


Important Questions You Should Consider:

  • Should the spouse file the wrongful death case? 

  • Should the children file the wrongful death case?
  • Should the parents file the wrongful death case?
  • Can a life partner, roommate, aunt, uncle, grandchild, grandparent or other dependants file the wrongful death case?
  • Who will act as the personal representative of the Estate in the case?
  • Can all of the survivors have the same lawyer, or is that a conflict?

These are all very important questions that you must discuss with a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer who specializes in wrongful death cases.


The second issue to consider is WHAT can be recovered (what kind of damages) by the survivors who properly file the case. The damages are different in a wrongful death case than a case where the injured person is alive and can bring the case on their own behalf. 


Why is this important? Because an inexperienced Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers may forget to include all of the proper survivors in the wrongful death case or may not recover all of the damages which the survivors are entitled to recover.
