A frequent question regarding California wrongful death claims is whether someone can bring a wrongful death claim based upon the death of their sibling. The answer to that question is that you may be able to. It depends on a number of factors. California probate law dictates who can and can’t be a claimant for a wrongful death under a California wrongful death claim. It will depend on whether or not that decedent, the person who was killed as a result of someone else’s negligence, had children or were married. If they were unmarried and didn’t have any children, and you are the closest relative, you may be able to bring it. It may be your parents that need to bring the claim.
