Is there a statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim?

Every state has a timeframe laid out by law for someone to file a wrongful death lawsuit. After the designated period passes, any legal action on the claim will be barred. The clock usually starts running at the time of death or at the time the party became aware of or discovered the death. The starting point varies from state to state.
