Can I Bring a Wrongful Death Lawsuit for My Loved One?

Often times, individuals wonder if they have legal rights to bring a wrongful death suit for their loved one. The law sets aside certain individuals who are eligible to do so, including surviving spouses, children, or parents, all of whom have three months to file a claim.

You can recover compensation for various damages, such as:

  • Lost financial support
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental and emotional suffering
  • Funeral costs and expenses
  • Hospital bills or expenses
  • Loss of inheritance

Some cases may allow for exemplary damages when there is evidence of a willful act or gross negligence. This can include punitive damages intended to punish the guilty party and may increase the verdict amount. The spouse will typically be granted the first opportunity to file a claim, garnering the most compensation, while dividing it between children and parents in certain cases.
