Compassionate Legal Counsel
Some accidents are so severe the victim does not survive. This is especially tragic when the accident was caused by the negligent behavior of another person or company. At Rosen Law Offices, we help survivors get fair compensation when their loved ones die in an accident. Surviving family members can recover a variety of monetary claims, including costs of medical care, burial expenses, and the funeral for their deceased loved one. Forcing those accountable to take responsibility for their actions can help you find a sense of closure to the tragic events.
Our wrongful death attorney works closely with clients to help them find the resolution they’re looking for. Call (949) 335-0020 to set up a free case evaluation.
CA Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death Accidents
One of the hardest aspects of dealing with a wrongful death is that, in most cases, no one sees it coming. In a split-second, lives are changed by a car accident, slip and fall, or other accident. The victim’s loved ones are understandably distraught and will have a hard time thinking of what to do next. Thankfully, the California statute of limitations gives you a decent window to deal with the immediate aftermath before contemplating legal action. Even so, we would still urge you to pursue a lawsuit as soon as possible in order to collect important information before it is lost.
The statute of limitations for wrongful death in California stipulates that you have:
- Two years after the injury or death to file a suit.
- Three years from the injury if it was the result of medical malpractice
- One year after discovering an injury that was the result of medical malpractice
- Six months after an injury in which a government entity could be held liable
A lawsuit is certainly not the most prominent thing on anyone’s mind at the time, but addressing the matter is an important step as a successful case holds the liable party responsible and provides your family some support through a difficult time.
