Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
If you think you have a wrongful death case, you need to begin by filing a claim. However, not just anyone can file a claim. Only those closest to the deceased may file a valid claim, which means direct family members, spouses, or dependents. To determine whether or not you are able to file, you must discuss your situation with an attorney. You must also abide by the statute of limitations, which is the time limit during which a wrongful death claim may be filed. Typically, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the person’s death. If you wish to file a claim after that time, the court is unlikely to hear your case.
