Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Suit

My father-in-law filed a personal injury suit. He died 3 months later of Mesothelioma. Now his spouse is named as the only Plaintiff(listed only individually, not as representative of the estate) on the wrongful death suit. I understand that the adult children can be a part of the settlement. My question is..Do they have to join the suit as Plaintiffs or are they automatically included on the spouse's suit and whatever settlement she agrees on they receive a portion of?
