Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Colorado, and most other states, a wrongful death claim cannot be filed by just anyone, even if they are related to the deceased. During the first year after the victim's passing, only the spouse is eligible to file a wrongful death claim. When the first year is up, then the victim's children become eligible to file a claim. In the case where the victim had neither a spouse or children, then their parents become eligible to file a wrongful death claim.

It's also important to note that there is a time frame wherein the victim's family can file a wrongful death claim. Any claim from either the spouse, children, or parents of the deceased must be filed within two years of the victim's passing. If you attempt the file a claim after the statute of limitations has passed, your case will not be heard in court, so it's important to speak with a skilled wrongful death lawyer immediately, so to ensure your case has the optimal chance of success.
