Who can file a wrongful death claim?
Wrongful death claims must be filed by the “real parties of interest” meaning those who suffer damage from the person’s death. This can be a surviving spouse, children, grandchildren, next of kin or others who are financially dependent upon the deceased. It is critical to consult an experienced wrongful death attorney to determine your right to file a claim and its real value.
