Who Can Bring A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Wrongful death refers to a civil action in which the plaintiff seeks damages for the death of a family member who was killed due to another party’s willful or negligent actions. State laws vary regarding which family relations are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Typically, close family members such as a spouse, parent or child will be able to bring a wrongful death suit. In general, plaintiffs in wrongful death lawsuits seek compensation for medical expenses and funeral expenses. Depending on the circumstances, plaintiffs may also be able to recover damages to compensate them for loss of companionship and/or economic support.
