If you lost someone you love in a car accident, the negligent party needs to be held accountable.

Who Can File a Claim?

In California, only certain people can file a claim after a fatal car accident. Specifically, surviving family members or people who are legally allowed to represent the deceased driver’s estate can start a claim. This unique limitation applies because the situation calls for a wrongful death claim filed in the name of the deceased person, which is not technically a car accident claim.

If you lost a loved one in a fatal car accident and want to file a claim, then you should know that you only have two years from the date of their death. This statute of limitations doesn’t begin on the date of the car accident if that is not the same date as when your loved one passed away from the resulting injuries. Attorney Scott Corwin is prepared to walk you through this difficult time and represent you by filing a lawsuit against the reckless driver who ended the life of your loved one.

What Types of Damages Can Be Recovered?

The types of damages that can be recovered in a fatal car accident claim will reflect the true extent of economic and non-economic losses caused by the fatality. The specific claim should address all the harm suffered by the deceased driver and their loved ones.

Economic damage to pursue in a fatal car accident claim may include:

  • Cost of final medical treatments the deceased received due to the accident.
  • Funeral and burial expenses paid to honor the deceased.
  • Loss of financial support the deceased would have provided their family.
  • Lost household services the deceased would have completed in their lifetime.

Non-economic damage to pursue in a fatal car accident claim may include:

  • Pain and suffering from the crash experienced by the deceased before they passed.
  • Lost comfort, companionship, and care suffered by the claimant.
  • Lost guidance that would have been provided to the deceased’s children.
