Things to know about a wrongful death claim

Are you considering a wrongful death claim? There may be many reasons for this, such as if a loved one was killed in a motor vehicle accident. While you never want to find yourself in this position, if you do it's imperative to understand the law and where you fit in.

First things first, a wrongful death claim has time limits within which they must be flied. Known as statutes of limitations, you only have so long to file a lawsuit against the other party. If this time passes, you will likely lose your right to take legal action.

Note: Each state has its own statute of limitations, so make sure you're familiar with the law in the state in which you live. Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is one year or longer.

Some states also implement a law known as statutes of repose. With this, a product liability claim is prohibited in the event that the product has reached a particular age. This could come to the forefront if a person passes away as the result of an incident related to an older product.

At our law firm, we understand the ins and outs of making a wrongful death claim. We also realize that many people, especially those who are grieving, find it difficult to make the right decisions with respect to their future.

If a loved one has been killed as the result of another person's negligence, don't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights. This includes the steps to take to file a wrongful death claim.
