It takes but an instant for a single act of negligence to cause a permanent loss. Every five minutes in the U.S., there is a wrongful death – a loss of life that could have been prevented had a person or company acted with proper care.
If you are left without a parent, child, spouse, or other family member because of another’s carelessness or wrongdoing, we at Jackson & Wilson are here to help you. We represent the families of those who have lost their lives due to no fault of their own, and we do so with passion and skill.
You have the right to seek justice in civil court after the preventable loss of a family member. An Orange County wrongful death lawyer can guide you through these proceedings, handling every aspect of your case so you don’t have to. When you work with our firm, we will treat you like family. And we believe there is nothing as important as family.

Who Can File a California Wrongful Death Claim?
In California, you may be able to file a wrongful death action if you lost a:
- Child or stepchild
- Domestic partner
- Dependent parent

Those persons who would be entitled to a victim’s estate under California intestate succession law may be able to file a wrongful death action if there are no other qualifying family members, including parents, siblings, nieces, nephews, grandparents, or next of kin.
