Before the Claim: Knowing Your State’s Wrongful Death Law
When a person is injured by the negligence of another, the question of who will bring the claim is usually straightforward: the injured person. But in wrongful death suits, one of the preliminary issues is identifying the proper party to bring the action. This may be more contentious than expected, because people who are in line to bring the claim often do not want the responsibility, and people who are not designated want the opportunity to fight for justice.
