Wrongful death claims lawsuits vs. criminal prosecution  

California state law allows family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit for the loss of a relative due to the negligent, reckless, or purposeful actions of another person or party. While some wrongful death cases involve criminal acts, there is a difference between a criminal prosecution and a civil wrongful death lawsuit.  

Criminal cases that stem from the death of an innocent person involve a government prosecutor seeking to prove a defendant’s guilt. If the state or federal prosecutor is successful, punishment in the form of a prison sentence and/or fines will be imposed on the defendant. Wrongful death civil cases, on the other hand, are brought by the family of the deceased for the purposes of recovering damages related to the loss of their loved one. If the case is successful, the liable party will be compelled to pay compensation to the family members named in the lawsuit.

Common wrongful death cases  

You can hire an Azusa wrongful death lawyer to represent you and your family in cases involving a range of incidents, including: 

  • Car accidents 
  • Intentional or accidental firearm accidents  
  • Homicides 
  • Poisonings with chemicals or drugs  
  • Fires, including smoke inhalation and burns  
  • Falls 
  • Drowning  

Defendants in wrongful death cases can be found liable even if they did not intend to cause harm. Any careless, reckless or negligent act that caused the death of another person can lead to the surviving family members pursing compensation. Even seemingly small acts like failing to intervene in an emergency or forgetting to close a backyard pool gate can lead to wrongful death cases.
