Minnesota Wrongful Death of a Child Attorney

How do you file a wrongful death claim against a negligent person when their reckless behavior killed an innocent child?  Because a child does not earn a wage or contribute to a family’s finances in any way, it is difficult to calculate the economic loss for a child’s death.  However, under Minnesota law, the loss of a child’s companionship and affection can be recovered by the parents.

The deceased child’s mother, acknowledged father, adoptive parents or legal guardians can recover for the death.

For wrongful death cases of an adult child, parents can file a beneficiary claim if the deceased contributed financial or household services to the parents.  The parents can also file a pecuniary loss claim which includes loss of advice, care, comfort and companionship.

If you have lost a child due to someone else’s negligence, we urge you to call Tarshish Cody at 612-808-8999 (or fill out the free Case Evaluation Form) to speak to one of our wrongful death attorneys so we can start fighting for your justice.
