Who can file for a wrongful death claim?
When a person’s negligent or reckless actions lead to another person‘s death, the individual responsible could be held liable under a wrongful death claim. However, there are certain people who must file the claim for it to be considered legitimate. Generally, immediate family members, such as parents, spouses and children, may file a wrongful death claim. However, in certain cases, extended family members, guardians, or legal dependents may also file a claim.
