WHO IS ALLOWED TO FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?
In Arizona, a wrongful death claim can be brought forward by a surviving spouse, child, parent, or personal representative of the estate of the deceased. Siblings and live-in girlfriends or boyfriends, no matter how close, are not able to bring a claim.
Kinds of damages a successful wrongful death claim can recover include:
- Costs related to the burial or funeral
- Medical expenses incurred for the injuries which lead to the death
- Emotional distress suffered by the beneficiaries
- Lost income and reasonable future support from the deceased
- Loss of companionship, love, and guidance of the decedent
You need to keep certain matters such as the statute of limitations in mind if you choose to pursue a wrongful death claim. If your claim has not been resolved by the time the statute expires, you will be unable to collect damages.
