Such claims may be brought by the surviving spouse, child, or parents of the deceased either as individuals or as a group choosing to file the claim together.
Adult children may file a wrongful death claim on behalf of their parents, however, brothers and sisters may not be allowed to file a claim for wrongful death for their sibling under state statutes.
The most common types of damages that a beneficiary seeks after the wrongful death of a loved one is compensatory damages, however, there are other types of damages they may be entitled to claim. These include, but may not be limited to, the following:
