A wrongful death lawsuit is a legal claim for damages and compensation brought by the surviving family members of a person who has died, been killed, or lost in a fatal accident. The claim is available to family members of the decedent for a number of different damages resulted from the death, including financial burden, loss of family services, as well as loss of society and companionship.

How To File A Michigan Wrongful Death Lawsuit
A wrongful death claim is brought by the personal representative of the estate of the decedent. Under Michigan law, a probate estate must be opened for the family to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Typically, the family members agree on the person to be appointed as the personal representative.
Our law firm for Michigan wrongful death lawsuits handles the necessary paperwork to open the probate court estate for the family. We work with the personal representative to obtain the best possible settlement. Once the claim is settled, we work with the family members entitled to receive a share of the settlement so that everyone is satisfied with the share they will be receiving. If the family members cannot agree on the amounts, the judge can then make that determination.
