Q: If a plaint. in injury Case dies, is the case dead? (Attorney said) and can civil proced. 377.32 be used AgainstMeSign?
California case- I was never told of any court dates but they all occurred. I’m a bit hesitant to just trust blindly here. The lawyer has been vague on things and I alone was the one who hired him, talked to him. My wife was incapable
A: No. The case is not dead if Plaintiff dies. There is a new law that allows pain and suffering even if Plaintiff dies. You should consult anyone of us on Justia for a free consultation.

A: The more relevant question is... do you want to continue with a lawyer who is "vague" and making court appearances without communicating with you? Ask for a copy of your file or ask for documents related to a specific concern you may have. You don't want to be left in the dark on issues related to this claim. You included the relevant code in your question. Google CCP 377.32. Communication with your lawyer is important. You hired your lawyer. You can fire your lawyer. Contact one of the lawyers on this forum. Consultations are free. Good luck. Patrick
