How do I Know If I Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death claims can be filed by a representative of the survivor. Usually, the executor of the deceased person's estate is designated as the representative. You can file a claim if you are:
- An Immediate Family Member of the Deceased
- A Life Partner, Financial Dependent, or Putative Spouse of the Deceased
- A Distant Family Member of the Deceased
Who Can Be Sued for a Wrongful Death?
You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against a wide range of people, companies, government agencies, and employees. This includes:
- Drivers or employers who are at fault for a fatal automobile accident
- Government employees who fail to provide adequate warnings for road hazards that caused a deadly accident
- Manufacturers, distributors, or installers of a malfunctioning or dangerous product that resulted in a person's death
You can be awarded compensation to cover things like lost wages from the deceased, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and funeral expenses. Remember, it doesn't matter if the death was caused by intentional, reckless, or negligent acts, survivors of the deceased can still file a wrongful death claim.
