Understanding Damages in California Wrongful Death Claims 

In a typical personal injury suit, plaintiffs can seek compensation to cover their medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses directly related to their injury. In wrongful death suits, however, plaintiffs seek money for other damages related to the death of their loved one.

In California, wrongful death plaintiffs can seek relief for:

  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses incurred to treat the deceased before death
  • Lost future income the deceased was reasonably expected to earn
  • Loss of any anticipated financial support
  • Loss of love, affection, attention, community, guidance, and moral support

Please note that some of these damages are associated with the deceased's estate, and others are associated with surviving family members. So, for instance, the parents of a deceased man cannot retrieve estimated future income (unless the deceased was financially supporting them). However, the wife of the deceased man is part of the man’s estate and shares finances with him, so she may pursue estimated future income.
