Question:

Can I file a wrongful death claim for a sibling?

Answer:

Sibling Filing a Wrongful Death Claim Recently, I had an inquiry from a potential client asking if, as a sibling, they could file a wrongful death claim. The answer is possibly, but initially what you have to do is you choose who’s going to be the person who will be the personal representative and represent the family in a wrongful death claim. Typically, there is an order that is followed, starting with the spouse, the children, the parents, and then could result down to a sibling being the person that’s handling the wrongful death claim. Again, that all depends on the specific facts involved with the case and the family involved.

That is why it is important that you reach out to a knowledgeable attorney who handles wrongful death cases on a regular basis. If you have lost a loved one as the result of someone’s negligence, please reach out. We’re here to help.
