Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Suffering the passing of a loved one can be hard especially when it was caused by negligence. If you have a family member that died because of a wrongful action or negligence you could file a wrongful death lawsuit against the entity or person who caused it.

The purpose of these types of claims are to make up for the losses that were caused by the family member’s death. 

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death claim can only be brought by a designated beneficiary.

Depending on the law, which varies from state to state, the designated beneficiary could be the widow or widower of the deceased person as well as the child or children.

Examples of designated beneficiaries are:

  • immediate family members like spouses, children, adopted 
  • siblings
  • grandparents
  • life partners
  • financial dependents
  • those who suffer financially as a result of the death

 

What is a Survival Claim?

It is a claim that belongs to the estate of the deceased person and  for the purpose of covering medical expenses and damage suffered by that person before their death.

 A survival claim is not the same as a wrongful death claim but can be related.
