- Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Arizona?
The laws of personal injury in Arizona generally deal with losses that are suffered because of the negligence, recklessness or the intentional conduct of someone else. However, there is no greater form of sudden loss than when negligence, recklessness or intentional conduct leads to the death of another person. In these situations, the surviving family members are forced to pick up the pieces and to move on, and those that face this issue should only do so with the help of experienced Phoenix wrongful death attorneys. Below is a brief overview of which parties can file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawsuits – Parties Who Can File Claims
The laws of Arizona, as is the case with every other jurisdiction, lay out which parties are eligible to file Arizona wrongful death lawsuits against those responsible for these untimely deaths. These laws limit the number of people who can initiate these filings because a failure to do so would lead to potentially thousands of lawsuits where the plaintiffs have not suffered any type of loss. Specifically, Arizona law allows for the following parties to file these types of lawsuits:
- The surviving spouse
- The surviving children
- Parents of a child who was killed
- A personal representative of potential beneficiaries
- Siblings if there is no spouse or children
Basically, those who can file such a claim are those parties who depended on the person who was killed for financial and emotional support, and in some situations there are other requirements.
