Who Can File Indiana Wrongful Death Lawsuits?

Indiana laws on wrongful death cases are very specific about who can and cannot file a lawsuit on behalf of a deceased loved one. For instance, it will often depend on whether the victim was an adult or child.

The Adult Wrongful Death Act and Child Wrongful Death Act statutes set forth the damages recoverable for the death of a loved one, as well as who is able to bring a claim for damages.

Because Indiana’s wrongful death law is complex, it is important that you consult with an experienced wrongful death lawyer following the loss of a loved one.

Wrongful Death Compensation

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the loss of your loved one, there may be multiple sources of compensation.

The initial focus of attorney Boulton’s investigation will be to determine all possible sources of negligence.

Additionally, once all the appropriate parties have been placed on official notice, Boulton Law Group will work toward pursuing the various types of compensation, including any possible economic damages as well as all others allowed under Indiana law.

Statute of Limitations

Indiana law allows for a set amount of time in which someone can initiate the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit.

Generally speaking, a legal representative often will have two years from the date of a loved one’s death to either file a negligence lawsuit or settle the claim. However, in instances involving a minor, the statute of limitations can be much longer.

It is important to understand that every case will have unique factors that officially determine its specific statute of limitations.

Unfortunately, Boulton Law Group has witnessed instances where a loved one did not contact an attorney quickly enough and lost their right to file a lawsuit. The only sure way to determine the statute of limitations is to have attorney Boulton review the details of your potential lawsuit.
