Who can file a wrongful death case?

A surviving spouse may bring a wrongful death claim. If there is no surviving spouse, the children may bring the death claim. If there is not a surviving spouse or surviving children, the parents of the decedent may pursue the wrongful death claim. Absent a surviving spouse, surviving children, and surviving parents, the administrator of the decedent’s estate can sue on behalf of the estate.
