California Wrongful Death California wrongful death claim occur as a result of a negligent or intentional act. The “act” can be drunk driving, careless operation of a motor vehicle, failure to maintain a premises, creating a hazard, or a defective product. Wrongful Death A California wrongful death claim can be the result of an intentional act such as murder, manslaughter, and other deliberate or reckless conduct. However, California courts do allow a defense for intentional acts when it is a justifiable homicide – killing in self-defense – that is not considered to be a wrongful act. When a fatality is caused intentionally, as in the case of murder, a California wrongful death claim falls under the umbrella of intentional torts. Since insurance carriers generally do not cover losses caused by intentional torts, most people do not pursue a California wrongful death claim that is caused intentionally unless the person being sued has substantial income or assets pay a judgment. Negligent Driving A California wrongful death claim can occur if an individual is found liable for the death of another and that individual’s negligent conduct was a substantial factor in causing the death. Negligent conduct is careless conduct or conduct that was not intentional. A majority of California wrongful death claims are the result of people driving carelessly. This includes: Running a red light or coasting through a stop sign; Failure to obey traffic signals; Excessive lane changing or weaving in and out of traffic; Driving at an unsafe speed or in excessive of the speed limit; Eating or drinking while driving; and, Use of a cellphone to talk, text or take pictures while driving. Your Insurance Carrier Your insurance carrier will cover negligent acts up to the policy limits – the maximum amount of coverage selected by you, the policyholder. Any excess award (over the policy limits) will be paid by you. Some drivers may have an umbrella policy in their homeowner’s policy which may pay compensation for a loss caused by negligent driving. Be sure to check your homeowner’s policy to see if you are covered for any excess award that may be awarded. Failure to Maintain a Safe Premises Your homeowner’s insurance policy is a premises liability insurance that typically provides coverage for a California wrongful death claim resulting from negligence acts committed in your home. Business owners have premises liability insurance that provides coverage for a store, office, commercial structure, or residential building. Homeowners become liable for an injury when they invite others into their home and business owners become liable for injuries when they open their stores or offices for customers. If there is a fatality that could have been prevented, the property owner or manger can be held responsible for that person’s death. Unsafe Products A California wrongful death claim can be a products liability lawsuit when the fatality is caused by negligence design, manufacture, or testing of a product. Products liability includes pharmaceuticals that are placed on the market without adequate testing; the consumption of tainted food that was improperly prepared or not adequately inspected; and vehicles or other equipment that are poorly designed or manufactured with a defect. Toxic Substances A California wrongful death claim can occur if a person’s death results from exposure to a toxic substance.

Dealing with Insurance Companies When you’re involved in an auto accident, you will most likely have medical bills to pay and will have lost wages because you could not work. If the accident was caused by another person, that person’s insurance company will try to contact you about paying these damages and settling any potential claim. Often, these cases will be settled out of court but, even so, you may limit any recovery you are entitled to when you talk to the insurance adjuster. Dealing with the insurance company can be difficult and confusing. Remember, the insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and will have a different perspective on your case and the value attached to any injury. What to Do Should you be involved in an auto accident, make sure you get contact information from any other drivers as well as all witnesses; take photos of any property damage; and, takes photos of any bodily injury, if possible. Immediately notify your insurance company but consider contacting an attorney before you talk to the other driver’s insurance carrier. Your policy requires that you cooperate with your insurance adjuster but you are entitled to legal representation before contacting the other driver’s insurance carrier. Adjuster’s Duties The insurance adjuster investigates your claim, contacts witnesses, reviews any police report and hospital records, and inspects any physical damage. They use this information to determine the value of your claim or how much the insurance company will pay. Remember, your recorded conversations with the insurance adjuster can be used and, are most often, evidence that has the greatest effect on a claim. Avoid Quick Settlements If you’ve been involved in an auto accident and both drivers have auto insurance, the adjusters from each company will contact each other about the case. They will discuss any and all information they have obtained about your case. If you’ve been injured in a non-automobile accident, like a slip and fall in a business, the business owner’s insurance company may contact you directly to determine the facts in your case. The insurance adjuster may offer to settle the case quickly which often is to your disadvantage. You should wait until you know the extent of your injuries, what treatment you’ll need in the future, and what limitations you may suffer from your injury before considering any settlement. In the meantime, you should carefully document all of your treatment, bills, and lost wages. Discussing Your Case When dealing with an insurance adjuster for the other person’s insurance company, remember that the adjuster’s job is to try to settle the claim as quick as possible and for as little as possible. You should avoid discussing your injuries with any adjuster until you know the extent of your injuries and whether or not you’ll need treatment in the future. If you’re asked to make a recorded statement about the accident, you may want to consult an attorney beforehand. Medical Records The other party’s insurance adjuster may ask you to sign a form authorizing your medical provider or doctor to send medical records to the insurance company. Remember, should you do so, you will be giving the insurance company access to all of your medical records, including those that may not be related to the accident, which may limit your recovery for damages. Contact an Attorney A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the complexities surrounding your personal injury case. Most cases are done on a contingency basis which means that you have not out-of-pocket expenses.
