Who Can File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Indiana?

Indiana law on wrongful death lawsuits is specific about who can file a claim on behalf of a deceased loved one; it often depends on whether the victim was an adult or child.

Indiana has several wrongful death statutes that may apply, depending on the facts of a particular case, including what are commonly referred to as the Adult Wrongful Death Act and Child Wrongful Death Act. These statutes set forth the damages recoverable for the death of a loved one, as well as who is able to bring the claim for damages.

Indiana law relating to wrongful death claims is complex. That is why it's important that you quickly consult with an experienced wrongful death lawyer following the loss of a loved one.

We do not want to see you lose the right to hold accountable those who were negligent in the death of your loved one. That is why it is important to have an experienced professional handle these complex details.

Compensation Types For A Wrongful Death

Does the type of accident matter? In most cases, no. After we conduct an initial investigation and prove that someone else's negligence was the primary cause of your loved one's death, we will move forward with pursuing compensation for economic and noneconomic damages, including possible attorney's fees, based upon Indiana statute.

Statute Of Limitations For Indiana Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Like other accident cases, Indiana law contains an unforgiving time limit for filing a wrongful death claim. In general, a person has two years from the date of a loved one's death to either file a negligence lawsuit or settle the case. However, each case will have unique factors that officially determine the applicable statute of limitations.

In most cases, attorney Boulton can determine the correct statute date for your case through a short question/answer interview by phone.
