Can You File for A Wrongful Death Claim for A Passenger?
In the United States, the number of passengers that died from traffic accidents is second only to drivers. Thus, if your loved one was a passenger in a traffic accident and died from the incident, you have the right to consider filing a wrongful death claim against the person who was driving the vehicle they were riding in. This is especially true if driver negligence was the cause of the accident.
