When it comes to seeking damages for the wrongful death of your loved one and filing a lawsuit, the general rule in California is that you can file the lawsuit in two places: 1) where any of the wrongdoers live, or 2) in the county where the injury-causing death occurred. In cases against government entities, you may be required to be file suit in the county of the government entity you are suing.
