What Warrants a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Any number of accidents might warrant a wrongful death lawsuit. Some of the most common include, but are not limited to:
- Car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Accidental overdose due to pharmaceutical or medical error
If your spouse, child, or parent died under suspicious circumstances, and you have reason to believe a wrongful death lawsuit might be necessary, we encourage you to reach out to our attorneys. There is a statute of limitations on wrongful death lawsuits that typically spans two years from the date of the person’s death, depending on the location. In other words, you have a limited amount of time to take legal action on your loved one’s behalf. If you think you have a case, you need to discuss the particulars with your attorney to determine the best possible course of action for you and your family.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death claims can only be filed by the deceased person’s nearest family members. Typically, the spouse or partner will file a wrongful death claim, though parents or adult children may file as well.
Any other dependent, such as an adopted child, a step-child, or someone else who was financially supported by the deceased, can also be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. In some situations, the siblings or other relatives may be able to file a claim.
To determine whether you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim, you must consult a legal professional. Each case is unique, and while state laws can help guide your legal understanding, it is always best to talk to a professional. At Crumley Roberts, we’re here to help you.
