Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death claim is a type of lawsuit that allows the people most affected by a wrongful death to recover compensation. In general, wrongful death claims can be filed by the deceased person’s immediate family members, such as their spouse and children. If the victim is younger or is unmarried at the time of their death, their parents may be able to file a claim.

Other family members or an appointed overseer of the deceased person’s estate may be able to file a claim under certain circumstances. The goal of a wrongful death claim is to compensate the people who have been left without financial resources because of a death and/or are the most emotionally attached to the deceased person. In different situations, people other than the immediate family of the deceased person may be able to file a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death claimants may be able to recover compensation for damages such as:

  • Medical bills accrued before death

  • Funeral and burial expenses

  • Loss of income

  • Loss of companionship / consortium

  • Grief counseling

  • Pain and suffering

Any emotional, physical, or financial damages that you and your family have suffered because of your loss deserve to be compensated. Webb, Stokes & Sparks can help you build a strong claim in order to win the payout that you deserve.
