Wrongful Death Attorneys Serving All of Southern California and Beyond
While dealing with the death of a loved one is difficult under any circumstances, losing someone due to another person's carelessness or deliberately malicious actions can be exponentially more difficult to handle. You can and absolutely should consult our firm if you believe you may have a wrongful death case based on the circumstances surrounding your loved one's passing.

We know that no amount of money will ever replace your loved one. We will do everything possible to protect your financial stability as your life tries to move forward. Mr. Bryman and Mr. Apelian passionately advocate on your behalf to make sure you collect enough money for all of your economic losses as well as intangible losses, which would include loss of consortium and companionship, from those responsible, even if the decedent was partially at fault. If applicable, we will also help you pursue punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer.
Who can file a wrongful death claim in California
Even if you were extraordinarily close with the person who passed away, only certain survivors or partners are allowed to file wrongful death claims. Spouses, children and dependent parents and life partners are the primary parties who may file wrongful death claims. If the individual who passed away was not married and did not have any children, then the right to file a wrongful death suit goes to nondependent parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, grandparents, and finally blood or adopted relatives in the family line. Life partners now have rights, too.
Putative spouses, the children of putative spouses, life partners, stepchildren and minors who were dependent upon the deceased can also file a wrongful death lawsuit under certain conditions.
