Can You File A Wrongful Death Claim Against A Negligent Driver?

Yes, you can. In California, a wrongful death claim can be submitted as long as the at-fault driver is found to carry liability that caused the death of the victim. Negligent actions by the driver, as long as it can be proven by you and your lawyer, can be a reasonable cause to a wrongful death claim.
