What happens when there are multiple plaintiffs filing a wrongful death lawsuit?

If a wrongful death lawsuit is pursued by multiple plaintiffs the there a few ways the process will look like. If the numerous plaintiffs are in agreement, they will typically be regarded as a single claimant. What that means is the cap is then applied regardless of the number of plaintiffs listed on the lawsuit

However, if the plaintiffs are not in agreement, two possibilities arise. The first solution is for each plaintiff to file separate lawsuits through different law firms. In this situation each party is unaware of the proceedings of the other plaintiffs. The other solution is for the plaintiffs to hire separate attorneys that then work together, a process known as an “aggregate demand.”
