Who Is Entitled to Wrongful Death Compensation?

How Long Does it Take To Settle Wrongful Death Claims?

This depends on the nature of each case.

A case with a lot of compensation on the line can take years to settle or reach a verdict. An attorney can help set proper expectations for the process.

How Long Do You Have To Sue for Wrongful Death?

Each state has a statute of limitations, with the majority being two or three years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, when the clock starts ticking is also different in many state laws. You should talk with an attorney as quickly as possible, so you do not lose your right to pursue the compensation you deserve.
