Who can sue for wrongful death?
It is important to understand who can be a plaintiff in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Make sure you have all possible plaintiffs in a wrongful death case.The first group that can bring a lawsuit includes spouses, domestic partners, children, and their heirs. If none of these people exist or apply, then the parents can sue. If they were financially dependent on the deceased person, a putative spouse, children of putative spouse, stepchildren, and parents can sue even in the presence of the first group. It is also possible for a legal guardian to bring a lawsuit. Financial dependency will need to be shown by receipts, billing statements, bank statements, and other similar documents.
