How do Wrongful Death Accidents Happen?

Any accident is capable of turning into a catastrophic and life-altering event. These types of accidents often occur due to the negligence or recklessness of another person and can include car crashes, medical malpractice, slip and fall incidents, construction site accidents, and more.

No matter how it happened, if you have lost a loved one because of someone else’s careless behavior, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Financial Compensation in Wrongful Death Claims

When you lose a family member due to the negligence of another, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Depending on your situation, this could include:

Statistics on Wrongful Death Claims

Research shows that the number of wrongful death claims in North Dakota has been steadily increasing over the past few years. In 2019, there were over 400 wrongful death claims filed in Fargo alone.

Statute of Limitations on Wrongful Death Claims

There is a statute of limitations in place for wrongful death claims. Generally, the time limit is two years from the date of your loved one’s death. However, this may vary depending on certain circumstances, and it is best to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

The following actions must be commenced within two years after the claim for relief has accrued:

  1. An action for libel, slander, assault, battery, or false imprisonment.
  2. An action upon a statute for a forfeiture or penalty to the state.
  3. An action for the recovery of damages resulting from malpractice; provided, however, that the limitation of an action against a physician or licensed hospital will not be extended beyond six years of the act or omission of alleged malpractice by a non-discovery thereof unless discovery was prevented by the fraudulent conduct of the physician or licensed hospital. This limitation is subject to the provisions of section 28-01-25.
  4. An action for injuries done to the person of another, when death ensues from such injuries, and the claim for relief must be deemed to have accrued at the time of the death of the party injured; provided, however, that when death ensues as the result of malpractice, the claim for relief is deemed to have accrued at the time of the discovery of the malpractice. However, the limitation will not be extended beyond six years of the act or omission of alleged malpractice by a non-discovery thereof unless discovery was prevented by the fraudulent conduct of the physician or hospital.
  5. An action for recovery of damages arising under chapter 5-01, and the claim for relief is deemed to have accrued at the time of the alleged offense. This limitation does not apply to any claim for relief existing at the time of the enactment of this subsection.
