Can You File Claims Against Dead At-Fault Drivers?
Yes, you can. Usually, if the at-fault driver has died and you are planning to still take legal action, you can immediately file a claim against their auto insurance provider or directly against the beneficiary of the deceased’s estates. Choosing which action to take depends on the car accident case you are experiencing.
