- Loss of Companionship and Consortium. The deceased can no longer provide a spouse or family member with companionship, parenting, or relationship that was provided before the accident.
The Statute of Limitations for Filing a Claim in Minnesota
The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim in Minnesota is three years after the date of death under Minnesota Statutes section 573.02, but legal action must commence within six years after the act or omission that caused the wrongful death.
If you do not file a lawsuit within this time period, you may be ineligible to take legal action against the at-fault party. If a loved one was killed in a wrongful death accident, and another party is at fault, act now before the deadline passes.
