What Is A Wrongful Death Claim?
Minnesota Statute 573.02 defines a wrongful death as the death of a person caused by an intentional or negligent “wrongful act or omission of any person or corporation.” A wrongful death claim allows surviving family members to recover compensation for a loved one’s death. Wrongful death claims can be the result of many different types of fatal accidents, the most common of which are:
- Auto, truck and motorcycle collisions
- Bicycle or pedestrian accidents
- Defective products
- Work-related accidents and injuries

Recovery can include reasonable funeral expenses, lost wages, health care benefits, and loss of companionship or guidance. The state allows the surviving spouse, child, parent, grandparent or sibling of the deceased to file a wrongful death claim.
