Who Is Entitled to Wrongful Death Benefits?

Only certain parties can file a wrongful death claim in California. Once one such party does file a claim, it is expected they will include all other eligible parties as plaintiffs. Otherwise, there could potentially be multiple claims filed at once against the defendant, creating confusion in the court system and potentially causing complications when deciding how damages should be paid.

Parties that can file a wrongful death claim are:

  • Decedent’s spouse or domestic partner
  • Decedent’s children
  • Relatives with genuine interests in decedent’s estate

California's Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

There is a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims in California. The statute of limitations begins on the day the decedent passes away, not on the day of the accident or incident that eventually led to their passing. After two years, if no wrongful death claim has been filed, any subsequent claim will be dismissed by the court.
