Under California law, you have a legal right to seek compensation for the wrongful death of your loved one only if you are a legally recognized family member. More often than not, these include married spouses, registered domestic partners, and children. However, other relatives may also have a right to seek financial compensation if they can demonstrate evidence that they were financially dependent on the deceased person.
