Compensation for fatal medical malpractice in California

California law places a limit of $250,000 on the compensation your family can obtain for non-economic damages resulting from wrongful death caused by medical malpractice. This includes compensation for pain, suffering, inconvenience, physical impairment, disfigurement and other non-pecuniary injuries. However, our lawyers may be able to help you recover more compensation if you suffered additional economic damages, such as the loss of income your loved one would have provided. Our family-run personal injury law firm helps clients seek up to the limit in compensation for all types of damages:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Wages and other financial support the deceased would have provided
  • Gifts and benefits the deceased would have provided
  • Compensation for household services the deceased provided
  • Loss of parental guidance and support for the children
  • Loss of companionship or consortium for the spouse
  • Grief, sorrow and mental anguish of the survivors
