Determining Who Files the Claim
Wrongful death claims can be slightly complicated. Although it is easy to think of them as an extension of regular personal injury claims, not just anyone can file the claim. If your loved one was still alive and had the grounds to file a personal injury claim, you know you have won half the battle already. However, only specific people can file a wrongful death claim. If you are a spouse, a parent, or a child, you can typically file a wrongful death claim. If you had some other relationship with the deceased, speak with our Tampa wrongful death due to any death caused by another person, entity, or organization attorney to see if you qualify.
