Can I bring a wrongful death case on behalf of a child or elderly loved one?
The answer is yes. There is really no difference in a lawsuit for an adult vs. a child or an elderly individual. There is only one to be one wrongful death case. Only one person can bring that case and it’s going to be the representative of the estate. So there would be if you have a young child that’s passed away. The representative for that child’s estate can bring the wrongful death case. If you’ve got a middle-aged wage earner you would still have to have a representative for that person’s estate. And, if you’ve got a loved one that’s up in years, that you know maybe you’re the guardian for that person having to watch after them and take care of them. If they pass, you’d still have to have either you or someone would have to be named the representative of that estate. And then a wrongful death case could in fact be filed. So, no matter what age of the individual you’ve lost, if you have lost a loved one you believe that someone has died because the wrongdoing of another call Bailey Javins & Carter.
