Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death claims can be brought by certain family members, including immediate family members. While laws differ in every state, eligible family members may include:

  • Surviving spouse
  • Children
  • Parents

If you are unsure if you can file a wrongful death lawsuit, our legal team can help you understand your eligibility after reviewing your claim. We make it a point to ensure you have the information you need and the earnest support and guidance you deserve at every step of the process.

Compensation for Family Members

While no amount of monetary compensation can make up for such a loss, it can help ensure surviving relatives and those dependent on them secure the compensation needed to cover damages and their future needs. Damages differ from cases to case, and state to state, but wrongful death claims may generally allow victims to recover compensation for:

  • Expenses such as medical and funeral bills
  • Loss of care, companionship, or protection
  • Loss of financial support, including benefits
  • Other relevant financial and emotional damages

Time Limits on Filing a Claim

It is important to note that there are time limits on filing wrongful death claims. Known as the statute of limitations, these time limits could prevent surviving family members from being able to pursue legal action and recover compensation. This is why it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your rights.
