Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Mississippi?
Not just anyone can file a wrongful death claim. Mississippi statutes specify that only certain relatives of the deceased may file a claim:
- A personal representative of the deceased person’s estate
- A surviving husband or wife
- A surviving parent or child
- A surviving sibling
A wrongful death lawsuit seeks compensation for the loss of the deceased family member – essentially, it is a personal injury lawsuit filed on the decedent’s behalf. Compensation from a successful lawsuit can include repayment for costs of medical care, funeral and burial services, loss of financial support and benefits, loss of companionship, and more.
