Who should bring the claim turns on the stage of life of the loved one.
If the loved one was married, then the surviving spouse (a husband or a wife) has the right to bring a claim.
If the loved one was not married, but had children, the children have the right to bring the claim. If the loved one was married, and had children, the surviving spouse brings the claims on behalf of the children.
If the loved one was not married, and had not children, then the parents must bring the claim.
If the loved one was not married, did not have children, and whose’s parents are dead, then the claims must be brought by administrator or executor of an Estate. Stated differently, brothers and sisters do not have a direct statutory right to bring a claim.
