How Long Do I Have To File A Wrongful Death Claim?

Generally speaking, the statute of limitations on a wrongful death claim is one year from the date that a personal representative is appointed in Probate Court. The personal representative must be appointed and the estate must file a civil lawsuit in Circuit Court within one year. If this does not happen, your action is waived or lost forever.
