Filing a Wrongful Death Action After a Fatal Crash
After losing a loved one in a fatal accident, bereaved families have the ability to file a wrongful death claim. This type of legal action can provide financial relief for funeral costs, burial expenses, and a variety of other financial burdens that families face.
According to existing regulations, the process of initiating a claim for recovery can be undertaken by the surviving spouses, children, and parents of the deceased. In the event that the family fails to submit a claim within three months following the death of a loved one, a representative of the estate is also eligible to file a wrongful death claim.
