Who's eligible to recover damages from wrongful death claim?

Published On: Aug 20 2014 02:55:54 PM CDT


If you feel negligence or wrongful acts by another person led to the death of one of your loved ones, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.

If you file a case and win, who gets the damages?

If the deceased was a child, his or her parents would receive the damages. If the deceased was married, the spouse would receive the damages, with some money being designated to the care of their minor children (if they have children under 18). If the deceased was unmarried and didn’t have children, then the damages would go to his or her heirs.

If you have questions about a wrongful death claim, please seek the advice of an attorney.
