Statute Of Limitations In Minnesota

Wrongful death cases are often the most difficult civil cases to process because of the grief and shock from the loss of a loved one. Finding the right attorney can put you on the path to securing your financial future.

The time frame you can bring a claim for wrongful death in Minnesota is three years from the death and no longer than six years from the incident. The statute requires the following elements for a claim:

  • A person dies.
  • The person's death was caused by the wrongful act or negligence of any person or corporation.
  • A trustee must be appointed by the court to pursue the case. Recovery may include compensation for the economic loss to the surviving spouse and next of kin resulting from the death.
  • Once the claim is resolved, the court then determines the proportionate pecuniary loss of the next of kin entitled to the recovery and calculates the distribution of the recovery.
