- Immediate family members (children, parents, guardians, siblings, adoptees)
- Financial dependants for lost support or care
- Distant family members such as cousins and grandparents
- Spouses or long-term partners

Who Can Be Sued for Wrongful Death?
There's a few liable parties depending on the case. The law varies based on which state the death occurs. In general, claimants have been potentially victimized by whichever parties are at fault. This can include a driving company's employer if you're in an auto accident, the company responsible for any roadwork, an employee, government agencies, manufacturers and distributors, a building owner, and others.
Who is at fault depends on where the accident happened, any liability coverage, and other factors. It is essential to contact an experienced wrongful death attorney that can assess the case and make sure all damages are covered.
