Who Can Claim Wrongful Death Compensation?
As wrongful death compensation is intended to cover damages and losses incurred as a result of someone’s death by car accident or anything else it can only be claimed by a person, or persons, closely related to the deceased. The normal hierarchy involved in wrongful death claims is:
Surviving spouse, children, can make a wrongful death claim on a “joint and several” basis
If there are no spouses or children, the deceased person’s parents are next in line for eligibility, following by siblings, then deceased sibling’s children, then grandparents.
Minors who both lived with the deceased and received at least 50% support from this person for at least 180 days before death may also have a claim
After you’ve lost a loved one, you need to fight for wrongful death compensation. Rather than taking it on your own shoulders, schedule a consultation to discuss your case with a Los Angeles wrongful death attorney by calling 310-997-0904.
