Filing A Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Indiana Must Be Timely
Indiana law sets a statute of limitations, or time period, for filing a wrongful death lawsuit. A family (or personal representative of the deceased’s estate) must file suit within two years from the date of death. While that may seem like a long time to file a suit, it goes by quickly. The aftermath of loss moves quickly.
Furthermore, after a person dies, it can take some time to determine if negligence was the cause. Car accident investigations, for example, can be highly complex. A full forensic breakdown may not be immediately available. The information from that breakdown may be hard for you to acquire.
Damages You Could Recover
In a wrongful death claim, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate can recover compensation, known as damages, that directly pertain to the person who passed. This may include:
- Lost earning potential
- Funeral costs
- Medical bills
Additionally, there is a possibility for an award of “noneconomic damages,” which cover pain and suffering, loss of consortium and other factors. In this way, the law attempts to recognize the magnitude of the loss.
