  • Spouses

Grounds for Wrongful Death Claims in Chula Vista

To file a wrongful death lawsuit against any person or entity, you must have a legal basis for doing so. You will need to prove that the liable party breached a legal duty of care, and that the breach directly led to the accident that caused the decedent’s death.

Wrongful death can also be caused by an intentional act, such as an attack or some other criminal activity. As opposed to criminal court cases that seek to punish the offender for their wrongdoing, a civil court proceeding is for the purpose of awarding compensation to the victim’s family.
