  • Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Grand Rapids

    Michigan laws are fairly clear on who can file a wrongful death claim. This includes the following:

    • A spouse
    • Children
    • Parents
    • Grandparents
    • Brothers and sisters
    • The deceased’s estate
    • Stepchildren
    • Anyone appointed in the deceased’s will

    In addition to limiting who can file the action, state law also outlines a time limit for filing a lawsuit. The time limit to file a wrongful death lawsuit is generally three years from when the death occurred. If you don’t file your lawsuit within this time, the court may not hear the case.

    There are some exceptions to this statute of limitations, so contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your legal rights and options in a wrongful death case.

  • Types of Damages You May Be Eligible to Recover

    Every wrongful death case is unique, but most qualify for similar damages. These can include both economic and non-economic damages like:

    • Your pain and suffering
    • Any treatment you need (or may need) to cope with your grief
    • The decedent’s pain and suffering
    • Lost spousal companionship
    • Lost parental guidance
    • Funeral expenses
    • Medical expenses
    • Lost financial support

    Some of these damages may seem difficult to calculate, especially for losses without a monetary value. However, Morgan & Morgan can work with you to help determine the value of your wrongful death claim.
