Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Navigating the intricacies of wrongful death claims can be complex, given that it is not the injured individual who files the claim. Instead, the survivors take on this responsibility. The specifics of who can file such a claim vary from state to state, and it’s crucial to understand what applies in your situation.

Individuals eligible to file a wrongful death claim include the personal representative of the deceased’s estate. This person is usually designated by the deceased in their will and bears the responsibility for managing the affairs of the estate. This includes key duties like arranging the burial and handling any compensation awarded to the estate.

Typically, the personal representative is a close family member of the deceased. If the deceased did not name a personal representative, the court would appoint one. The appointed personal representative is commonly:

  • The spouse or domestic partner of the deceased
  • The children of the deceased
  • If there are no surviving children, then others may be eligible, such as the deceased’s parents, siblings, or anyone who was financially dependent on the deceased.

The experienced attorneys at Greenberg Gross LLP are here to guide you through the complexities of wrongful death claims. We are committed to ensuring the personal representative of your loved one’s estate navigates this challenging process with comprehensive legal support and advice.

While you may be a close family member, you might not be the personal representative of the deceased’s estate and may wonder about your eligibility for compensation.
