Requirements for Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful death claims must be filed by a personal representative of the deceased’s estate. Generally, this will be a spouse or domestic partner of the deceased. However, if there is no surviving spouse or domestic partner, the next of kin-which may include children, parents, or siblings-may file. If damages are awarded and there is a will or estate plan in place, they will be paid to the estate and distributed to the family members in proportion to the loss that each suffered.

You may be eligible to recover compensation to go toward:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses that are related to the deceased’s final injury or illness
  • Lost wages and benefits that the deceased would have likely earned had
    they lived to retirement age
  • Loss of care, support, and companionship for surviving family members

Compassionate & Caring Washington DC Wrongful Death Attorneys

Because of the statute of limitations in place, surviving family members have only one or two years from the date of death to file a claim. If you lost a loved one to a wrongful death, now is the time to act. Our team of wrongful death lawyers at Zukerberg & Halperin are here to provide you top rated representation. In conclusion, we are here to provide compassionate and caring support as we aggressively fight for the compensation that your family is owed.
