In a wrongful death case, as per the law in the state of Minnesota, the spouse and the next of kin can bring a claim against the other party. The court then appoints a trustee, who is usually a family member. The trustee then represents the family, and after settlement of the case, the trustee divides the proceeds among the family members.
These are not criminal cases, as these cases are primarily meant to compensate heirs of the dead individual for their losses. In such cases, you need a Minnesota Wrongful Death and Fatal Car Accident Attorney and not a criminal attorney.
As per law, in cases of wrongful death, heirs are compensated for the income that would have been theirs in case the dead person had lived. We can only get financial compensation. We cannot be compensated for the pain and grief caused due to the death of the individual. We can however be compensated for loss of care, loss of advice, loss of comfort and companionship. We can also be compensated for funeral expenses, medical expenses and lost potential earnings.
We can also move the judicial system for punitive damages, if the defendant demonstrated disregard for the rights and safety of the dead person.
As per law, the inheritors have a time limit of up to three years to file the wrongful death claim for all cases, the only exception being a medical malpractice claim, which is covered separately under Statute of Limitations for medical malpractice.
