Minnesota Wrongful Death Statute

In Minnesota, wrongful death claims are governed by Minnesota Statutes, section 573.02. According to the statute, “When death is caused by the wrongful act or omission of any person or corporation, the trustee appointed as provided in subdivision 3 [the trustee represents the surviving spouse and the next of kin] may maintain an action therefor if the decedent might have maintained an action, had the decedent lived, for an injury caused by the wrongful act or omission.”

A Minnesota wrongful death case involves a trustee who acts on behalf of the deceased. In order to recover compensation, a Minnesota wrongful death lawyer needs to prove negligence of the wrongful death and the financial loss suffered by the surviving party (spouse or next of kin).
