Who can sue for wrongful death claims?
A wrongful death claim is a lawsuit filed by the survivors of an individual whose death was caused by recklessness or negligence of others. In order to be eligible to file a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff must be a direct relation of the deceased, typically the spouse, child (either natural or adopted), parent, or legal guardian of the individual. A wrongful death lawsuit can help the survivors secure compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, lost financial support, and loss of companionship.
