Question:

Can I file a wrongful death claim for a sibling?

Answer:

Wrongful Death Claims For a Sibling Generally speaking, the answer is no. If you are the personal representative, which is who files the claim for the wrongful death, then you can file it on behalf of the estate. Now, there are some very limited circumstances where a sibling might be able to recover directly. If a sibling came to us with that question, we would ask them a lot of wide-ranging questions about the other survivors, surviving spouse, children, etc. to see if they fit under the survivors of the wrongful death act, which controls these kinds of cases. If you have that question and your loss has occurred in Nassau County, Duval County, or the surrounding areas, call us. We’ll sit down. We’ll talk about it. We’ll get the answers to those questions for you.
