Recoverable Losses

California law generally allows heirs and surviving family members to seek compensation for fatal accidents. You may be eligible to seek both economic and non-economic damages that arise from the tragic accident or incident that prematurely took the loss of your family member. 

Economic damages may include 

  • The loss of financial support
  • The loss of gifts and benefits
  • Funeral and burial expenses 
  • The loss of household (chore) services

Non-economic damages may include the loss of your parent, spouse, or other loved one’s love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, society, moral support, enjoyment of sexual relations, training, and guidance. 

Limitations on Government Tort Claims

Suppose you suspect a government entity, such as a city, county, or state agency, is responsible for the wrongful death. In that case, you have a limited time to file an administrative claim, or your ability to sue may be forever lost. Some claims periods as short as six months. 

Thus, it is essential that you contact the San Francisco-Oakland-Bay Area personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at Fiore Achermann without delay to learn about your legal options.
