Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
In North Carolina, only certain parties may file a wrongful death claim after someone close to them passes away. But, in order to determine who can file, you must first understand what a wrongful death lawsuit can accomplish.
Wrongful death claims are meant to pursue justice and compensation on behalf of wrongfully injured persons who can no longer take legal action for themselves. In personal injury cases, the injured party files a claim against the party or parties liable for their injuries. A wrongful death claim is very similar, but the claim may include damages inflicted on the deceased, as well as any additional harm inflicted on the party filing the claim.
The following parties may file a wrongful death claim in North Carolina:
- The spouse
- The children
- The parents
In some cases, the court may allow siblings or other relations to file a wrongful death lawsuit, though this is rarely allowed if more immediate relations exist.
