However, know that with a wrongful death case, there is a time limit on which the bereaved can take legal action. These restrictions are called the statute of limitations. It will only allow you to file a wrongful death lawsuit within a certain amount of time. When these expire, the legal claim is no longer valid. Thus, the loved ones can no longer file a lawsuit.
