Who can file a wrongful death lawsuit?

Who can file a wrongful death lawsuit?

If someone has a will and they name any beneficiaries, those are usually the  persons who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Most commonly,  these are family members. If a husband or wife is killed, their spouse is able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Dependents may also file a lawsuit. If you’re not married, but you have children, they can file, or a guardian may file the lawsuit on their behalf. Every case is different, so it’s very important to seek competent legal counsel. Call Partner Jeffrey S. Wrage at Blachly, Tabor, Bozik & Hartman to help you determine what steps you need to take.
