How Can a Lawyer Help Me with My Wrongful Death Case?
There are many reasons why hiring a lawyer may help your case. However, the main reason for hiring an attorney to represent you is that our attorneys understand the law. Wrongful death cases can be complicated and stressful due to emotional hardship. Here are a few more reasons why hiring a lawyer can help.
A lawyer knows ways to add value to your settlement, but more importantly, they understand the value of your case. When we experience loss, especially the loss of someone close, we may lose more than just the person.
Sometimes we lose support and gain suffering and bills. The costs of these bills and other noneconomic damages should be a primary focus when building your case. These below are just a few examples of the cost associated with losing a close relative.
- Funeral costs
- Financial losses due to work absence or other reasons
- Medical expenses acquired due to pain and suffering
- Medical costs from the incident
Guidance and Support
There is no reason you should have to relive every detail of your suffering by gathering the infinite amount of details that go into developing a case. An attorney could be just the support you need. They will guide you through the process while viewing the case without attachment.
Moreover, being able to count on someone to have your best interest at hand will help alleviate unnecessary burdens. Our experience handling personal injury cases, attention to detail, and knowledge of the law can help you seek damages.
Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can work on filing a lawsuit within the statute of limitations (the time you have to file the case). You can save yourself the time you would have to spend gathering and building the case if you choose to get a lawyer. A wrongful death attorney on our team can help you meet deadlines and gather pertinent and timely information.
By allowing us to manage your case, you will have more time to process your emotions without the demand of time a case like this can present.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for a Wrongful Death Claim in Los Angeles?
The statute of limitations is the time frame you have to file a lawsuit against a person or entity after a wrongful death occurs or is discovered, as detailed by the California Courts website. Keep in mind that although the California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §335.1 states that a person has two years from the time of the incident to file a wrongful death lawsuit, it can vary depending on who or what was involved.
Here are two factors that can change the statute of limitation for a wrongful death claim and their limits:
- Government Entity or Government Vehicle: As per California Government Code (GOV) §911.2, before filing claims against a government entity, you must send them an administrative claim that they must respond to within 45 days, and their response, or lack of, determines how much time you then have to file.
- Medical Malpractice: You have three years from the time of injury or one year from discovery of the issue, per CCP §340.5.
Other factors that can stall or “toll” a statute of limitation:
- Age of plaintiff
- No prior knowledge of incident negligence
- Certain emergencies
Each case will be different and may be subject to exceptions based on the specifics of the case. These exceptions are why hiring a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer could be the route to take in these circumstances.
Statutes of limitations can be exceedingly confusing. Filing a case late can potentially cause you to miss out on what you deserve.

What Happens When You Go to Court for a Wrongful Death Case in Los Angeles?
When going to court for a wrongful death case, make sure you are eligible to file and make sure to gather the necessary proof of negligence.
- Only certain people can file a claim for wrongful death, per CCP §377.60, which include:
- Domestic partners or spouses
- Parents of the deceased
- Children of the deceased
- Victim’s appointed representative
- You need evidence that establishes the other party’s negligence, which is why you may find it helpful to hire a wrongful death lawyer.
Upon meeting the above requirements, the following occurs:
Choosing a Judge or Jury
Should you conclude that you cannot settle out of court, you will then choose to use a judge or jury to finalize your claim. Not all cases have the option for a jury.
If you choose a jury, there may be additional costs. Regardless of the path your case takes, you will want to prepare all evidence and witness testimony to argue that the other party was negligent. A consultation with a member of our team can help ease your mind as we help discuss your case options.
Opening Statements and Presenting the Case
Opening statements allow you and the defendant to outline what you want to prove in the case. Once both parties have made their statements, they can then present the case, which the plaintiff does first.
At this point, witnesses will answer various questions the defendant’s attorney may pose. Throughout this process, you or your attorney can dispute claims or questions, and the opposing side may do the same.
These are the final statements by both parties to conclude their arguments. These statements are the last exchange of information, and ultimate opportunity for persuasion, before the decision-making process begins.
Deciding the Case
In a case with a jury, deliberations involve meeting to discuss the evidence presented and arguments made. After the jury reaches a decision, they will announce it to the court.
In a judge case, the judge may decide shortly after receiving closing statements, or they may decide to take the case “under submission.” If this happens, the judge will mail the outcome to each party, and it will be entered as a judgment to make it official.

How Much Is the Average Wrongful Death Settlement in Los Angeles?
Comparing cases is a little difficult, as each case can have a unique combination of factors that impact a settlement amount. The only way to understand how much a wrongful death settlement in Los Angeles is worth is by thoroughly investigating the details of the case.
With claims, or when evaluating cases’ average settlements, multiple areas require consideration. Below are some factors to consider when determining how much your settlement could be:
- Age of the victim – the younger a victim, the more time they had to make money and provide for their family
- Age of the plaintiff – If a plaintiff is a minor when the wrongful death happened, there are more factors to consider. A minor can face limitations on filing a suit.
- Relation to the victim
- Non-economic damages – These include, but are not limited to:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of mentor
- Companionship and consortium
- Victim’s household contribution
- Victim’s education and work
- Whether an insurance company is paying the settlement – Insurance companies can pay for wrongful death cases, but there can be exceptions to certain cases. What makes this even more difficult is understanding the amount an insurer covers in these circumstances.
- Future losses based on benefits a plaintiff could have received if the victim were alive.
When averaging what you expect to get out of your case, these are vital points that you should take into consideration. Furthermore, with the amount of evident and non-evident factors at play, knowing what types of wrongful death cases to compare your case to can prove frustrating.

What Damages Can I Receive for a Wrongful Death Claim in Los Angeles?
Damages that affect your settlement are economic and non-economic. Economic damages are what you would have received monetarily from the victim if they were alive. Non-economic damages are the costs of emotional stress.
Furthermore, how much a settlement is, the “court shall determine,” according to the CCP §377.60. A survival action case can also impact awards, as per CCP §377.30. Below are some of the most common of both damages and how they relate to a wrongful death or survival action case.
When filing a wrongful death claim, this is typically automatic economic damage.
The awards are usually part of the survival action, as these bills happened after the accident but before the death. A lot of examination goes into making sure these bills do not include unassociated debt (i.e., pre-existing conditions).
Projected Financial Contribution
The calculation of how much income the victim would have shared in supporting the household over their expected lifespan.
Loss of Household Services and Benefits
The cost of services someone may have to pay since the victim is deceased, such as maid services, landscaping, childcare. Benefits include trust funds and savings associated with future life improvements.
In these cases, lawyers can seek assistance from economists, accountants, and other experts to find what a settlement is worth. The calculation is also brought to its current value.
Love, Companionship, and Guidance
This asserts that the victim was morally supportive, loving, and caring for the plaintiff. The pain and suffering are due to the loss of the victim’s guidance and training as well, meaning they were mentoring or helping the plaintiff in ways another person could not.
Loss of sexual relationship and enjoyment.
Pain and suffering and non-economic damages may be difficult to valuate, but you can hire a wrongful death lawyer to help you figure out the value of these losses.

What Evidence Do I Need to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Los Angeles?
Gathering evidence can be challenging, as you will have to recall details of the case and try to speak with witnesses. This can elevate your stress and is precisely why Pintas & Mullins Law Firm is here to help.
There are some important factors you will need to consider when acquiring evidence for your wrongful death case. This is not an exhaustive list, as every case is unique and may call for more or less to support the case.
- Did the death result in hardship to the plaintiff, and how?
- The cause of death was directly related to what you are alleging created the reason.
- Whether or not the defendant was the responsible party for the duty (or standard) of care. With the standard of care, lawyers can examine if someone had a duty to take action in the event, outlined here by California Civil Jury Instructions (CACI) No. 401.
- You must prove that the plaintiff breached his duty of care.
Some of the evidence that is pertinent to a wrongful death case is:
- Expert, eyewitness, and family testimony
- Police reports
- Financial and family records:
- Tax returns
- Pay stubs
- Marriage certificate
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical records proving the reason for death. Previously documented health issues not associated with the case will not be used.
- Death certificate
- Duty of care correlation
- Proof of loss of emotional and financial support.
Within each of these, there is an infinite list of subcategories that would help strengthen a wrongful death case. If you are filing for medical malpractice, you will need evidence that proves the doctor or nurses involved did not uphold their duty of care to the victim. If a drunk driver killed the victim, you would need evidence, such as toxicology reports, proving the driver was indeed intoxicated.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Below is a list of who can file a wrongful death claim as a plaintiff representing a victim. Those with what is known as a “putative” relationship to the victim can also file a wrongful death claim.
For example, a putative spouse is found in good faith to be married to the victim, although the marriage is voidable according to the CCP §377.60.
Others who can file a wrongful death claim are:
- Spouse of victim
- Biological, adopted, or stepchildren of the victim
- Victim’s chosen representative
- Any person financially dependent on the victim, to include any minor who lived with the victim for at least six months prior to death
- Domestic partners, which in California are two people who file a Declaration of Domestic Partnership with the Secretary of State that at the time of filing, meet all the requirements according to California Family Code (FAM) §297(b).
- Grandchildren whose parents are deceased.
Do not forget the statute of limitations as they apply to your circumstance as well, under CCP §335.1. In the instance the plaintiff is a minor, the statute of limitations may toll until they are 18 years of age.
Finding a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer is one place you can start after the wrongful death of a loved one. You can consult with a member of our team before gathering evidence and figuring out which route best fits you. Although the state typically follows a “one-action rule” for multiple plaintiffs for the same case, you can discuss your options when you call Pintas & Mullins Law Firm.
What Is a Wrongful Death Case?
Wrongful death cases are civil cases filed on the deceased victim’s behalf as a result of negligence or wrongdoing by another person or entity. This is not a criminal case, which can also result from these incidents. A wrongful death is a civil case, where a plaintiff seeks justice and economic coverage for factors involved in the victim’s wrongful death.
Wrongful death cases include, but are not limited to:
- Medical malpractice – Malpractice claims can occur from misdiagnosis, wrong treatment, or surgical errors.
- Manufacturer defects – It is the responsibility of a manufacturer to test their products for safety. However, sometimes someone misses errors or defects, and these products hurt people. Manufacture defects can result in a recall of the product.
- Toxic hazards – This could result from hazardous dumping, toxicity in water or food, etc.
- Automobile accidents – This is a widespread occurrence in Los Angeles. These can involve pedestrian accidents and drunk drivers. All drivers have the care of duty to respect the law when driving. If the death is due to a driver’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. There is also the case of faulty equipment.
Regardless of the cause of death, your case can involve complex factors and exceptions. Although you can pursue an insurance claim or a civil suit on your own, a lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law firm can examine your case from multiple angles to fight for compensation to help you deal with the impact of your family member. You can focus on recovery and providing the lawyer with details of your case, while our team will argue that the opposing party caused the death due to negligence.
How Long Does a Wrongful Death Claim Take to Settle in Los Angeles?
Once again, this varies. Some cases take a few months, and others can take years. The length of a case depends on how complex it is. Some claims may take less effort to prove or investigate, while for others, negotiation with an insurance company can involve a lot of back and forth.
However, if you are representing yourself, insurance companies may try and push for a rapid settlement with low pay that may not meet your financial needs. You may not realize all the details involved or the approaches you can take to negotiate a better settlement. You may feel pressured when handling the opposing parties or their representatives on your own, which is why hiring an attorney may benefit you.
It can be tempting to accept lower offers during this process, as negotiations can add stress to your life. The process may even go on too long, and you may miss the opportunity to take the case to court. Pintas & Mullins Law Firm wants to avoid this so you can fight for wrongful death awards.
We don’t want to rush or lengthen your case. When working with our team of lawyers, we will make sure that we dig deep into the facts, working toward a fair resolution. Moreover, even after all is accounted for and settled, it still takes time to process the paperwork and documents and to deliver the settlement.
Establishing Cost of Settlement
When establishing the cost of your settlement, you want to take your time. Some cases such as medical malpractice can also come with a lot of fine lines and medical and law jargon, which you may not understand. These types of cases can take longer as they can involve thorough investigations.
Furthermore, when establishing pain and suffering costs or the cost of what a victim would have offered the household in their lifetime, you or a lawyer may need to seek outside assistance from someone like an economist. These are all crucial factors to consider when calculating the time frame of your case.
Who Can I Sue in a Wrongful Death Claim in Los Angeles?
You can sue anyone who had a duty to prevent the death of your loved one and failed in that duty. However, it is your responsibility, or the responsibility of your lawyer, to prove this “duty of care.” No one is exempt from a wrongful death lawsuit if the evidence demonstrates the incident was due to their negligence.
You may have a case due to someone’s:
- Recklessness – This is when the defendant knew they were going against their duty of care and still acted in a way that caused the incident. Recklessness can also apply to criminal actions, and this can overlap with civil cases in certain instances.
- Negligence – This is when the defendant acted in a way an ordinarily careful person would not in the same setting.
- Gross negligence – These are extreme negligence cases where a specific mandatory task was not completed to ensure and uphold a party’s duty of care. This is more serious than negligence but less serious than recklessness.
However, the process of arguing and examining evidence can draw out the case, and it is possible your case will be against a corporation or insurance company. These businesses can seem intimidating when they push back on your claim or suit, and they may have their own legal team to fight your need for compensation.
Some insurance companies will try and rush a case. With easier to prove cases, a company may try to settle quickly. Defendants and plaintiffs can settle out of court but be careful as the defendant’s representative may try for the lowest settlement possible.
Hiring a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can offer peace of mind. Our team will fight for your interests so the defendant’s representatives don’t take advantage of your pain and suffering.
How Can I Prove Negligence in a Wrongful Death Case in Los Angeles?
To prove negligence, you must establish that the person you are suing breached his duty of care. You must also provide evidence that this breach caused the death. This is known as the burden of proof. Unlike criminal cases where burden must be proven beyond any reasonable doubt, wrongful death claims require “that there is a greater than 50% chance that the claim is true,” as explained by the Legal Information Institute (LII).
When gathering your proof, pay attention to how each element will support your case. Do not gather unnecessary details that could potentially weigh your case down, creating a distraction from the act that caused the victim’s death. If you are filing for a slip and fall claim where someone left water in an aisle at a store, which resulted in the death, do not bring in medical records that show the victim went through cancer treatment.
Other things to consider when proving negligence:
- What was the exact cause of death? (medical, product defect, hazard, accident, murder)
- How was the duty of care breached?
- Were there other factors that created the failure to uphold their duty of care?
- Was it intentional or accidental?
- How does the loss of the victim affect your life? (i.e., loss of financial support)
In the event the breach of duty of care was intentional, you can discuss these details with our staff when you call Pintas & Mullins Law Firm.
There are many working parts to a wrongful death claim in Los Angeles and finding an attorney can help you manage the stress and burden of building your claim or lawsuit. Due to the complex nature of these kinds of cases, you may find it helpful to hire a wrongful death attorney. Our team can review essential pieces of evidence that you could potentially overlook, and our lawyers can fight for fair awards.
When Can I Expect to Get Paid from My Wrongful Death Claim in Los Angeles?
The payment timeframe for a wrongful death claim will vary. Some cases are fast, and the payment releases in a few weeks or months, but others may take years. The settlement of the claim or the lawsuit can add to the time it takes to receive a payment.
After finalizing your negotiation, you, or your lawyer, will draft up release documents. These documents need to be carefully examined and signed before you can get your settlement. They are then sent to the insurance company, or other entity responsible, for paying the settlement.
Should you decide to use a wrongful death attorney, they will take care of this, as well as where the money needs to go before it hits your hands. Depending on what you pursued, they will pay for things like the medical expenses accrued, funeral expenses, and other bills. If there are multiple heirs, the award will be divided fairly and appropriately.
Moreover, the lawyer will want their cut. This should be discussed prior to the claim process. You and your lawyer will negotiate fees based on the claim. Outside of basic attorney fees, there may be gathering fees, expert witness fees, etc. Personal injury attorneys in Los Angeles will make sure this is in the contract before proceeding with your case, making each step transparent and easy for you to follow, so there are no hidden fees.
If you feel as if your settlement is taking too long you can bring this up to your lawyer. They may be able to find out why and keep you in the loop on your case.
What Happens in a Wrongful Death Case in Los Angeles?
After you have filed your case and the defendant has been served, you will start building your case. Above, we went over what happens when you go to court for a wrongful death case. However, prior to trial, there is a process that distinguishes whether you will make it that far or not — many wrongful death claims settle out of court.
Case Management Conference
As outlined by the California Courts site, this is the meeting that happens within the first six months after filing a wrongful death claim. You must discuss how you plan to settle the case with the defendant before the conference. You must also fill out a case management form 15 days prior to the meeting.
Depending on the case, this statement form may be all you need before you continue. If the court does schedule a case management conference and you can face fines or other penalties. Once your case management conference is over, a trial date is set, or you can move into an alternative dispute resolution (ADR), which is the process of settling out of court.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
There are a few options when settling through an alternative dispute resolution (ADR). However, during an ADR process, if you and the opposing side cannot settle the matter, you may have additional fees. A lawyer can negotiate and handle the defendant’s counterclaims. Three potential ADR paths include:
- Negotiation – This is where both parties discuss how they plan to settle, settlement amounts, and evidence they have.
- Mediation – Your party and the defendant’s party will work out settlement details with the help of a mediator.
- Arbitration – This is where a neutral person, known as an arbitrator, will look over evidence and arguments by both sides to decide the dispute.
Does Premises Liability Cover Wrongful Death in Los Angeles?
There are plenty of scenarios for premises liability that could result in the death of a loved one. For example, if the victim died because a property owner did not keep up with a property’s maintenance, supply proper security to help prevent criminal activity, or furnish proper disposal areas for hazardous material, premise liability may apply. However, an injury or death occurring on someone’s property does not automatically extend liability to that property’s owner.
You will have to prove that the property owner was at fault for premises liability to hold up in a settlement. It is important to understand that property owners have a duty of care to abide by municipal codes and other standards of care.
Examples of Premise Liability Negligence
- Not maintaining structural integrity
- Fire hazards
- Housing code violations
- Exposure to hazardous materials
- Poor security
- Poor lighting
- Dangerous walkways
- Drowning accidents
Before you file a wrongful death claim for premise liability negligence, make sure you can prove or determine:
- The person or entity responsible for the premises. This can include a property owner, but this is not always the case.
- This party was in some way negligent.
- The victim’s death was on or caused by an injury on the property.
- Their negligence was the main factor leading to death.
Wrongful death settlements that claim premise liability negligence are often complex. It can be challenging to prove that someone, such as the property owner, is actually the one at fault. You may have difficulty gathering evidence, especially if it is damaged or no longer available.
You may find relief with the support of a wrongful death attorney from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm. Our lawyers can serve you by gathering the most valuable evidence available to prove the defendant indeed failed to maintain safety standards on the property.
Properties typically have insurance, and insurance companies go to a great extent to prepare themselves against a claim. Going up against the property owners, businesses, or their legal team may seem intimidating, and it can involve a lot of technical, stressful conversations.
Do I Need a Lawyer for My Wrongful Death Case?
No, you do not need a lawyer for a wrongful death case or any case for that matter. However, there are benefits of hiring a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer. Laws are elaborate and a lot is involved in knowing how they can connect your evidence.
Furthermore, when dealing with these types of settlements, where you are the representative for someone who is deceased and cannot speak for themselves, missing evidence can complicate matters. Not completely understanding the law and how it can benefit you can create hurdles in collecting compensation.
Below are some reasons as to why hiring a lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm might be the extra help you need in establishing your case:
Our team of lawyers understands the law and what it takes to prepare an argument for any case. Our personal injury attorneys will personalize your case by identifying the main challenges and solutions based on our experience practicing personal injury law.

Fight for Just Compensation
We work hard to try for a fair settlement amount. We comb through every piece of evidence and every detail attached to the victim’s circumstance. We want to make sure that you aren’t only getting the compensation and closure you deserve, but your loved one is getting the justice they deserve.
Will My Wrongful Death Case Be Settled Out of Court?
Many civil cases, including wrongful death, do not go to court because the parties agreed to a settlement. Settling a case outside of court can save you from additional and prolonged pain and suffering, protecting you from the intense questioning associated with deliberations.
The ability to determine a party’s liability also plays a part in whether a claim makes it to court. A case with evidence that clearly demonstrates someone’s liability for a wrongful death means you may not need to go to court.
Here are some points to consider upon what to look at before agreeing on a settlement:
- Researching other cases similar to yours and compare the pros and cons
- Identify potential weaknesses in your case
- How the case will affect your family
- Possible holes in your evidence
- Settlement versus the cost of a trial (attorney fees, court fees, etc.)
- Examine all your claims to make sure you aren’t leaving anything out
Once you accept a settlement, you may not have another option for compensation. The courts highly recommend getting an attorney in these cases. These cases can call for substantial proof that another person or entity is at fault. This process requires a highly knowledgeable and experienced person to produce the maximum compensation.
Formulate a plan before you get involved in a case. A lawyer can help you determine who you should seek compensation from, if the settlement you want is fair or adequate for your losses, and if the plaintiff can even pay for the amount you want.
Seeking someone who can negotiate on your behalf and to help manage the evidence is a key factor in coming to an agreement. A legal representative will establish the facts as to why the settlement is fair, and both parties can work together more easily.
Types of Wrongful Death Claims
There is a long list of types of wrongful death claims. Pintas & Mullins Law Firm has most of that list covered on a national scale, from mesothelioma wrongful death claims, nursing home negligence, to automobile accidents. However, in Los Angeles, there are some wrongful death claims that stand out.
In 2019, accidents killed 236 people, according to a press conference by the Los Angeles Police Department, reported on ABC7. Even though there were fewer cars on the road at the beginning of 2020, the number of car accidents was comparable to the 2019 numbers at the same time, according to a news report from the Los Angeles Times.
Here are other wrongful death claims can occur in Los Angeles:
- Nursing home negligence
- Premises negligence
- Work accidents
- Product defects
- Unlawful activity
This is not a definitive list and with each label comes a list of subcategories, which is why it is important to examine all possible measures when diving into a wrongful death claim in Los Angeles. The facts you present will contribute to the outcome of your settlement, and the more details of the event you have, the more chances you have of justifying the amount of your claim.
