When Can Family Members Pursue a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Surviving family members can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit for the car accident death. Compensation under Michigan Wrongful Death Act provides for several different claims. This includes loss of society and companionship of the loved one, the loss of services provided by the family member, and the other economic losses sustained by the family. A claim can also be made for the conscious pain and suffering of the decedent from the time of accident until death.

In most circumstances, the surviving family members can also make a survivor’s loss claim under the Michigan no-fault Laws. These claims include the loss of household services and wages for the first three years after the accident, as well as partial payment of funeral and burial expenses. There are specific time deadlines for filing these claims and if you wait too long your claim may be destroyed forever.
