A car accident north of Chubbuck resulted in wrongful death after a driver failed to stop at the stop sign. Idaho State Police reported a two-vehicle car crash occurring at an intersection of U.S. Highway 91. A driver ran a stop sign and slammed into another vehicle which was traveling north. The driver which ran the stop sign as well as their passenger were transported by ground ambulance to a nearby hospital for evaluation of injuries. The driver of the vehicle which was struck, was transported to a medical center by private vehicle. It was reported that the passenger of the first vehicle, was pronounced deceased at the hospital.
Idaho State Police later arrested the driver which ran the stop sign for vehicular manslaughter, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver as well as a prior misdemeanor warrant.
Can You Sue a Family Member for Wrongful Death?
It is unclear how the passenger in the above paragraph was related to the driver. However, it brings to mind the question “can you sue a family member for wrongful death?” First of all, let’s define what wrongful death is. Wrongful death is a legal term used by lawyers and other court officials to describe a claim made against a person who negligently caused the death of another. Suing a family member for wrongful death largely depends on the situation, for instance who is involved, where the accident took place, etc. There are limitations on who may file a wrongful death lawsuit. In addition, there are differences among states for when family members can sue for wrongful death actions.
