Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In most cases, a wrongful death suit is brought about by beneficiaries who are in some way dependent financially on the person who has passed on, although this is not a strict requirement. Often, people bringing about a wrongful death claim are the spouse, children, or other close family member of the person who has passed away. These people can seek damages for loss of household contribution, loss of companionship, final medical and funeral expenses and other costs. In most cases, distant relatives are not allowed to file a claim.

Who Can Be Sued in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In most cases, defendants in these claims are manufacturers who have developed a dangerous product that has led to a death, employers who have violated safety rules and have permitted the death of an employee, drivers who have caused a fatal car accident, and others who have acted negligently and whose reckless actions led to a death.

Family members are usually not permitted to file a claim against other family members. For example, if the father of a family was killed in a car accident and the mother was driving, their child cannot usually sue the mother for the accident in a wrongful death claim.
