Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim? - Following a wrongful death, the following family members are eligible to file a lawsuit on the decedent's behalf: their spouse, their children, their parents or the personal representative of their estate.
Who Gets the Money in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit? - In general the surviving family members of the decedent will receive the damages awarded following the wrongful death. Assets will be distributed beginning with immediate family (parents, spouse, children, etc.).
Statute of Limitations - According to New York law a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within 2 years of the individual's death. This cutoff date is known as the Statute of Limitations.
