Types of Wrongful Death Cases

A case may be established when one person’s death derives from a “wrongful act or omission of another.” In Alaska, a personal representative of the deceased person’s estate can seek monetary compensation on behalf of both the estate and individual survivors of the deceased person. The statute of limitations in Alaska requires the personal representative file a claim in the state’s civil court system within two years of the person’s death.

Common types of wrongful death cases result from the following:

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Alaska?

Alaska law limits who can file a wrongful death claim to select individuals, including:

  • The surviving spouse
  • Any surviving children
  • Any surviving dependents

Recovered damages will first be paid to the decedent's spouse, followed by children and other dependents. If there is no surviving spouse or children, compensation is paid directly to the estate of the decedent.

Compensation for Victims of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death lawsuits are meant to give family members the opportunity to seek compensation on behalf of an individual who, had he or she survived, would have had grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party. In other words, to recover damages in a wrongful death case, it must be proven that your loved one's death was the result of the negligent actions of another person, company, or entity.

Common damages awarded in wrongful death cases include:

  • Final medical expenses incurred prior to the decedent's passing
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages, including future earnings
  • Loss of consortium (companionship)
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the deceased
  • Loss of household services
