Who can sue for wrongful death?
If you’ve experienced the loss of a loved one, you may be wondering who it is that can, in fact, bring a case for wrongful death. The answer to that question is that it can be a number of different people. First, the beneficiaries under a will can bring a wrongful death action. In addition, the heirs-at-law, that would be the children for example, can also sue for wrongful death. And of course, a spouse can also bring a wrongful death action. Overall, those folks that are impacted by the wrongful death either financially or because of the relationship that they have had to be deceiving, in general terms, can bring a cause of action for wrongful death.
If you have any questions about any potential wrongful death action, it’s important that you go ahead and seek legal advice from someone that’s competent in the area of wrongful death litigation. It is better to get in contact with someone sooner rather than later, especially so that you aren’t going through the grieving process alone.
