Sacramento Wrongful Death Lawyers

We Take Every Case as Seriously as You Do

Couple comforting each other after death of loved oneNo amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one. In the United States, the only civil remedy available is having a Sacramento wrongful death attorney fight for a monetary settlement or jury award that provides your family with the financial resources to move forward and hopefully provide some closure.

In a wrongful death case, surviving family members – the husband or wife, children, parents and siblings – can recover for loss of companionship and income that would have gone to support the surviving children or spouse. This recovery is especially important for California families with young children who grow up without a parent who should have been there to support and encourage them.

Our staff is always ready to listen to your case and treat it with the respect and care it deserves. Call (916) 525-7761 today to schedule a free consultation with our firm.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in California?

According to the California Code of Civil Procedure section 337.60, et seq. only specific people are allowed to file a wrongful death claim on a loved one’s behalf. These people are the deceased’s surviving:

  • Spouse or domestic partner
  • Children

California law states that if the deceased doesn’t have any of the above anyone "who would be entitled to the property of the decedent by intestate succession" is eligible to file a claim. Other people may be eligible to file a claim if they can prove they were financially dependent on the deceased.

In California, statutes of limitations set forth limits on the time during which you can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Generally, the statute of limitations to file a wrongful death suit is two years, although in certain circumstances the statute of limitations may differ.

For example, in a suit against a governmental entity, you must first file a “claim” with that entity within six months of the wrongful death. If you wait too long, you may miss your opportunity to seek justice. That is why it is critical to speak with a Sacramento wrongful death lawyer after a fatal accident – even if you are not immediately certain you have a claim.

Happy Clients

  • I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful.

    “I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful. I’m a single , working Mom with teenage boys which is stressful enough. We were living in horrible conditions in Redding Ca, landlord did nothing to remedy the issues, instead they retaliated. John was so professional , understanding and kind, We met at mediation about 6 weeks after he took me on as a client, he knew the bigger picture with me wasn’t about money, it was about people being treated Ike they are garbage and don’t deserve to live in a safe environment. John did get more money for us than original quote , but the best part he said he would send a letter to the other tenants and offer to help if they needed it. I can finally sleep at night. I feel like I made a great friend. Thank you so much.”
