Idaho laws specify which persons are entitled to bring wrongful death claims. In general, spouses, children, other dependents, and heirs of the estate may file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for their losses. However, this list is not all-inclusive, so it is important to speak with an experienced attorney to discuss your legal rights and recovery options.
A wrongful death claim is a legal remedy to compensate surviving family members for their losses due to their loved one’s death. For example, survivors may seek compensation for loss of the decedent’s financial support, medical expenses, and funeral costs. They may also seek compensation for certain relationship losses, such as loss of the decedent’s society, training, and services. It is important to note that damages for grief and sorrow are not recoverable under wrongful death claims in Idaho.
