Is there a statute of limitations to file a wrongful death claim in Indiana?

Generally speaking, you must bring a wrongful death claim in Indiana within two years after the victim’s death. This is known as the statute of limitations. However, certain exceptions exist. For instance, if the wrongful death claim involves medical malpractice, you must file the lawsuit within two years from the date that the negligent act or omission occurred and not from the date of the death.
