    In Missouri, certain family members have preference over others to file a wrongful death suit. The first group, including parents, spouses, children, or grandchildren, must file if possible. The next preference goes to siblings. When a wrongful death victim does not have any surviving relatives from either of these groups, you may have the court specially appoint a representative. In Illinois, the court selects a personal representative of the estate of the person who passed.
