In the heart of Orange County, Anaheim, California, is more than a place of amusement parks and vibrant cultural attractions. It's a city of close-knit communities, where the pain of losing a loved one reverberates beyond individual households. The Anaheim personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Brent W. Caldwell understand this all too well.
The Types of Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death is an unfortunate reality that can stem from various situations. It could be a tragic car accident on the I-5 or a fatal workplace incident at a local business. Regardless of the situation, each case carries its unique set of challenges, and we are prepared to help guide you through each one.
Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
In California, the law permits immediate family members like spouses, domestic partners, children, and sometimes parents to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you're unsure of your eligibility, don't worry. We can help clarify your legal rights and options.
Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death Cases in California
Time is a significant factor in wrongful death cases. In California, there's a two-year statute of limitations from the date of the deceased person's passing to file a lawsuit. This timeframe may seem ample, but building a solid case takes time. Therefore, it's vital not to delay reaching out to our office to schedule a free consultation.
Damages in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
The loss of a loved one leaves a void that no amount of compensation can fill. However, a successful wrongful death lawsuit can alleviate the financial strain caused by the loss. The damages you may be able to claim can include lost income, medical and funeral expenses, and compensation for personal losses like companionship and affection.
