Who Can File a Fatal Car Accident Claim?

Fatal car accident cases are very complex. Often the deceased is survived by parents, a spouse, and children. Multiple parties can file a wrongful death claim together and then allow the judge to decide how damages will be split. Compared to most personal injury claims, a wrongful death claim has a shorter statute of limitations. The family of the deceased must make a claim within two years of their loved one’s death.
