Marin County Wrongful Death Cases
In Marin County, there are many wrongful death claims filed each year. Marin County is considered a wonderful place to live, with its natural beauty, mild weather, and easy access to San Francisco.

Justice For Wrongful Death
If you recently lost a loved one and believe you may have a wrongful death claim, it’s essential to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible so they can help you determine if you have a viable lawsuit. In California, a wrongful death claim can be brought in response to the actions of another person’s negligence or as a result of an intentional act.
To prove negligence, you must show that the party you wish to file a claim against had a duty of care to the victim, they breached that duty, the breach led to an accident or injury that caused death, and the death caused damages or losses to you or other loved ones. It’s important to note that in California, you are not able to recover compensation for pain and suffering, in the conext of a Wrongful Death suit. Recoverable damages include compensation of the costs associated with a funeral/burial of the victim, loss of future income, financial support, household services, and the loss of the victim’s love, companionship, comfort, care, protection, assistance, affection, or moral support.
To prove intentional harm, you must show that the party you are filing a claim against had an intent to commit the act, they made non-consensual contact with the victim (this includes contacts such as hitting someone with a car or using a weapon), and the contact caused the death of the victim.
