Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Indiana?

While damages can be awarded to a spouse, children, or other dependents of the deceased, it is a personal representative of the deceased’s estate who is permitted to file a wrongful death claim according to Indiana law. When a wrongful death claim involves the death of a child, a claim must be filed by one or both of the child’s parents. In cases where parents are divorced, the claim must be filed by the parent who has custody. In some cases, a legal guardian of a child may also file a claim.

In all cases, the time limit to file a claim before the statute of limitations runs out is the same, two years. This means you have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing or you will most likely not be eligible to file a claim. If you have any questions concerning the statute of limitations or who is permitted to file a claim, contact our office today. Our attorneys are ready to fight for you!

Compensation Unique to Wrongful Death Claims

It is important to look for an attorney who has specific experience handling wrongful death claims in the Indiana justice system. While those who file wrongful death lawsuits can seek damages for lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other tangible and intangible losses, they may also be entitled to seek compensation for:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of benefits, such as medical insurance
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Funeral costs

The Northwest Indiana wrongful death attorneys at Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. take these factors into consideration when filing a lawsuit. If the opposing party does not offer a settlement that adequately addresses all your losses, we go to court to pursue the compensation you deserve.

We know nothing can replace your loved one – but we will do our best to offer our compassionate care and knowledgeable counsel to shield your family from additional suffering due to financial difficulties.
