Can I sue on behalf of a seriously injured or deceased family member?
Wrongful death claims can be challenging at times because you have to balance an individual mourning the loss of a loved one as opposed to aggressively pursuing the person who was responsible for the death of that person. Certain individuals have a right under the law to bring a claim on behalf of somebody who’s died as a result of the negligent wrong doer or died as a result of a dangerous or defective product. In general, the law says the spouse, the parents or the children of the deceased have a right to bring a claim. Now on certain circumstances, other family members have a right to bring a claim as well. Give us a call; the law can be complicated on this so we can help evaluate as to whether or not you qualify to bring a claim on behalf of that loved one.
