Moreno Valley, CA - Pedestrian Fatality on Perris Blvd

A wrongful death claim is only able to be filed by a surviving member of the deceased’s immediate family. The victim’s husband, wife, children, and domestic partner are usually given preference in this situation, however, if the circumstances are such that none of these people are alive or able to do so, then the claim for wrongful death may be arranged by a parent or another family member as long as legal documents proving kinship to the deceased can be provided.
