Causes for Wrongful Deaths

Sadly, wrongful deaths happen frequently in this country as a result of an endless list of injuries, situations, negligence and accidents. The most common wrongful death lawsuits in San Diego are because of:

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

Wrongful Death Cases

The California Wrongful Death Statute and Survivor Statute clearly say that a lawsuit for a wrongful death can be brought forward by the survivors of the deceased family member. The San Diego California personal injury law firm of DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo know wrongful death case law after decades of experience. The survivors who are eligible by law to bring the suit for wrongful death are the children, the surviving spouse, and the surviving children of any deceased children of the victim. They can file the wrongful death case separately but most families will come together to file jointly. If the wrongful death victim does not have any available relatives who are part of their direct family as listed above, then the victim’s parents, siblings, children of siblings and then their lineal descendants could have a right to bring the wrongful death lawsuit. You can discuss your personal situation with our law firm to see how your case would move forward.
