Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a statute of limitations on a wrongful death claim?

Yes. In California, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years. This means that you have two years from the date of a person’s death to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file a legal action within that time frame, you will likely be prohibited from doing so. That is why it is so important to contact a California wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to get started on the process.
