1. What is a wrongful death lawsuit?
Civil in nature, a wrongful death lawsuit seeks to hold the party responsible (or partially responsible—Los Angeles goes off of comparative negligence) for their actions that caused the death of your loved one. In many instances, there may also be a criminal case against the person but those are two totally separate lawsuits.
