Not sure what you mean --beneficiaries of what? If you mean of an estate, the wife's claim is the wife's claim. If you are considering a case I assume you've contacted a member of the Association for Justice of the state you are in, as they give free consults. Why nto ask them?

Q: Can I prevent a sibling from filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of our mother?

1 Answer | Asked in Wrongful Death for New York on
Answered on Jun 29, 2018
Peter Munsing's answer
No. Why would you want to? Let them. You may change your mind. It's brought on behalf of the estate, anyway. If someone else was at fault it's really their insurance that is at issue, and if no claim is made the only person that's happy if you don't file a claim is the insurance company--which has likely docked them for being at fault & jacked up their rates. So why would you want to help an insurance company?
