Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
There are two types of the beneficiary that can file a wrongful death claim after the passing of a loved one. These are categorized into “first-tier” and “second-tier” beneficiaries. First-tier beneficiaries are any or all immediate family members, such as the wife, husband, partner, or children. Second-tier beneficiaries refer to other immediate family members such as parents and siblings.
Second-tier beneficiaries are only allowed to file for wrongful death is there is not a first-tier beneficiary. The second-tier beneficiary also needs to prove that they depended on the deceased before the incident in order to file the claim. If they fail to prove their dependence, they will not be able to claim compensation.
