What are the qualifications for making a claim?
Wrongful death claims can often point to issues of product or premise liability, comparative negligence, or comparative fault. Litigating your claim begins with presenting the exact situation that occurred. For example, wrongful death may occur if a coworker ignored warnings or protocol, certain equipment malfunctioned, or a drunk driver caused an accident.
All of these elements must be set in place to secure the claim:
- The other party was obligated to obey safety rules or use ethical discretion
- The other party disobeyed rules or acted improperly to cause the death
- The other party's actions were the direct cause of the death
You must also be aware that California's statute of limitations will only allow you to file the claim within two years of your relative's death. If this deadline is not met, it forfeits your ability to file. This is another reason why it is so important to discuss your case with our team of California wrongful death attorneys as soon as possible.
