Yes, in Idaho, you may have a claim if a family member was killed in a truck accident. The legal claim for such cases is called a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit that is brought by the surviving family members of a person who has died as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful act.
In Idaho, the wrongful death claim must be brought by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. Damages that can be recovered in a wrongful death claim may include compensation for medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages, loss of companionship, and other related damages.
