Who can sue for wrongful death?

  • Children of the victim
  • Offspring of the victim’s predeceased children
  • Victim’s parents
  • Victim’s siblings
  • Other family members of the victim

A personal injury attorney can help you determine if you can pursue a wrongful death action and help you create a strategy for obtaining compensation for your loss.
