Wrongful Death Actions in California
September 9, 2021
In California, as in most other states, surviving family members of the deceased may bring a wrongful death claim against those persons or entities that were responsible for the death.
Wrongful death actions in California are often combined with survival actions, as they are deeply interlinked. A survival action is the suit that the deceased person would have brought had he or she “survived” the incident-at-issue – instead, the cause of action is preserved and is passed on to the deceased person’s successor in interest (closest surviving family member, spouse, etc.).
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
September 9, 2021
In California, the law requires that all drivers purchase a minimum of $15,000 in liability insurance. There are millions of drivers in the state who choose to purchase only the bare minimum policy. As such, if you are the victim of a motor vehicle accident, there’s a reasonably high likelihood that you will not be able to recover more than $15,000 (or some other minimal policy ceiling) from the at-fault driver as compensation for your injuries.
The Plaintiff's Duty to Mitigate Damages
September 9, 2021
n California, defendants can assert a partial defense – that, if successful, will reduce their damages liability but not necessarily absolve them of it in its entirety – known as the failure to mitigate damages.
So, what is a failure to mitigate damages in the personal injury context?
