The victims of a wrongful death are not just those who die.  We believe the survivors are also victims and that they deserve compensation for their family member’s death. Indeed, the California Wrongful Death Statutes and Survivor Statutes states that if the death was the result of improper conduct, recklessness, criminal conduct, negligence or inaction of another, the survivors are due monetary damages.  Each and every wrongful death case is unique and hard for all the survivors to go through. Since 1979, our firm has been successfully assisting family members with the legal process.  Wrongful deaths happen every day as a result of an endless list of accidents and injuries. The most common wrongful death lawsuits in Long Beach are from:

  • Motor vehicle accidents including truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, car and auto accidents, boating accidents, rollover accidents and drunk drivers;
  • Criminal Conduct and intentional acts such as murder;
  • Product defect liability accidents including automobile or truck defect, machine defect, product defect, tire defect, saw defect, or equipment malfunction;
  • Work Accidents;
  • Slip and Fall – Premises Liability;
  • Pedestrian, Crosswalk and Bicycle accidents; and
  • Construction Accidents.

The California Wrongful Death Statute and Survivor Statute expresses that a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought by the survivors of the deceased family member. Since the late 1970s, the personal injury law firm of DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo in Long Beach, CA has been side-by-side with grieving families winning for them maximum recovery. The most common survivors who are legally eligible to bring the wrongful death suit include the surviving spouse, the children, and the surviving children of any deceased children of the victim. They are not required to file together by the law but most families will file jointly. If the deceased does not have any relatives who are on this list that are available, then the siblings, parents, children of siblings and then their lineal descendents may have a right to bring a wrongful death suit.  By calling our firm, we will discuss the specifics with your wrongful death lawsuit and how the case can move forward.
