A wrongful death action may be brought by the close relatives of the victim to seek compensation for the victim’s death which includes the loss of love, companionship, advice, emotional and financial support.

 

A family member may also file a “survival action,” where California Law allows compensation to the victim’s estate for the pain and suffering and other damages and actual expenses incurred by the victim that were suffered up to the moment of death.

RECOVERY OF ECONOMIC DAMAGES RELATING TO WRONGFUL DEATH

There is no cap on economic damages in California. Accordingly, if a woman supports two children, the children would be entitled to recover for the loss of the comfort, education, and position in society which they would have enjoyed if their mother had lived and retained her income and they had continued to form part of the family.  Our Fresno Wrongful Death Lawyers are able to meet with your personally and explain your rights moving forward.

 

Practically, this means they are also entitled to 1) her lost wages from the time of the accident and her death; and 2) future lost wages.  A future lost earnings award is allowed for earnings “reasonably certain” to result from the injury and are awarded by the jury in a lump sum.

 

The amount of lost earnings awarded must be based upon present value and not upon speculation about inflation or other unknown factors impacting earning potential. But, obviously, the computation of future lost earnings is not exact and to some degree it invariably requires speculation about the decedent’s life expectancy and expected work experience.
