Surviving relatives must file a wrongful death claim within two years of their loved one’s death. If the death was caused by medical malpractice or exposure to asbestos, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim may be extended as necessary.

Although we know that this is an emotionally trying time for your family to go through, it is important to pursue legal action in a timely manner. It is beneficial for surviving parties to contact our team of wrongful death lawyers soon after the death occurs so that we can bring the full force of the law against those responsible.
