How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

According to California law the statute of limitations to file a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of your loved one’s passing. This means you only have two years to file a wrongful death claim or you will lose your right to do so, meaning you also lose your right to recover compensation. Exceptions to the statute of limitations do exist that can change the amount of time you have to file. Contact Law Offices of Steven A. Fabbro our firm today to speak to an attorney about your case.

Seeking Full & Fair Compensation for Your Loss

The courts in San Francisco recognize the right of a wrongful death plaintiff to demand compensation for any and all economic losses that have been incurred as a result of a fatal accident, including:

  • Expenses for medical treatment
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Replacement for the value of household services that your family would have received from the decedent

In addition, you can claim damages for the loss of present and future financial contributions that you could have expected in the form of income, gifts, and benefits.

On top of the economic damages you can claim in a wrongful death action, you can also demand noneconomic damages for your loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, and moral support, among other things. The goal in the case is to provide you with sufficient financial compensation to offset the considerable economic impact of your loss and to make it easier for you to move on in life.
