Wrongful Death Claims In Oxnard

California law generally recognizes any loss of life caused by the careless, reckless, or intentional actions of someone other than the victim as wrongful death. By statute, a surviving spouse, domestic partner, close family member, or personal representative of a deceased wrongful death victim may pursue a wrongful death action for monetary damages against the party (or parties) at fault.

In a separate, but related, lawsuit called a survival (or decedent’s) action, the victim’s estate can also pursue damage claims that the victim would have been entitled to pursue, had the death not occurred. Experienced lawyers often combine wrongful death and survival actions into a single claim.

Damages in Wrongful Death Actions

California’s wrongful death statute permits the claimants in a wrongful death action to seek all damages “that, under all the circumstances of the case, maybe just”. These commonly include:

  • Loss of companionship, society, guidance, or consortium
  • Loss of the deceased victim’s income, financial support, or household services
  • Funeral, burial, and other death-related expenses

Damages paid for wrongful death are paid directly to the victim’s heirs as determined by a court. At Kash Legal, we work tirelessly to make sure that our clients receive the maximum compensation available for the tragic loss they have suffered.

Damages in Survival Actions

The estate of the deceased victim can seek compensation in a survival action for the damages the victim suffered before death, which may include:

  • Medical and other expenses incurred in treating injuries and health conditions that led to the death
  • Loss of income and employment benefits prior to death
  • The victim’s pain, suffering, and disfigurement (currently available in lawsuits filed between 2022 and 2026)

The victim’s estate can also seek punitive damages, which serve to punish the at-fault party, in a survival action. Damages in a survival action are paid to the victim’s estate, which distributes them according to the victim’s will or as directed by California probate law.
