Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Death is part of life but the cycle of life and death is why life is so beautiful. Unfortunately, it is extremely devastating when a person’s life is cut short by the reckless acts of another person. Untimely and preventable situations that lead to the death of a loved one are often the basis of wrongful death lawsuits. When a family member dies because of the negligent or reckless behavior of another person, the family that remains may file a lawsuit against the person or company responsible. This is called a wrongful death lawsuit.

What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Wrongful death lawsuits require a legal reason (grounds) to file a claim. The reasons for a wrongful death lawsuit are based on someone losing their life because of another person’s negligence or intentional act, and the surviving family members were directly impacted by the death both emotionally and financially.
At One Law Group, PC in Beverly Hills, we will work to help families establish two things in order to be successful with a wrongful death lawsuit:
- The death of your family member was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or deliberate act of another person or company in which the actions of your family member did not create the event.
- Measurable damages were suffered by the surviving family because of the wrongful death of their family member.
In wrongful death cases, grounds for a lawsuit include deaths that are caused by an automobile accident, medical malpractice, work-related accidents, and unlawful acts that happened during a crime being committed by another person.
Wrongful death lawsuits are typically filed by surviving family members such as spouses and children. Depending on the state that your family member passed away, some states will allow extended family members—grandparents, grandchildren, and siblings—to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you have suffered the loss of a family member because of the careless and reckless acts of another person or company, the wrongful death attorneys at One Law Group, PC may be able to help you recover damages for your loss.
