Can You File A Claim Against A Deceased At-Fault Driver?
Yes, you can. In general, this means you need to file a claim against the beneficiary of the deceased’s estates. It might also be possible to go to the deceased’s auto insurance provider and file a claim to them. We do not advise you to use your own auto-insurance; this might incur a higher premium for you later on, which is unfair to you since you are not the party at fault.
