What is Considered Wrongful Death?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What is considered wrongful deathLosing a loved one is tragic, no matter what the circumstances may be. The situation becomes even more heartbreaking when the loved one has died because of the negligence of another person. In some cases, this situation may be considered wrongful death. Mr. Hamdam, Los Angeles PI attorney, can help you decide whether this tragedy merits a wrongful death claim.


In California, a wrongful death claim may only be filed under certain circumstances. The defendant must be clearly responsible for the death through negligence. For example, a driver who hits a pedestrian who unexpectedly runs out into on-coming traffic will probably not be sued for wrongful death. However, a physician who botches a surgery, resulting in the death of the patient, can likely be sued for wrongful death.

In addition to negligence, the plaintiff must be able to prove that they have suffered a loss personally or financially due to their loved one's death. For example, someone can sue based on the loss of a spouse's or parents income, or perhaps on the loss of companionship.
