You may be wondering what the first steps are to take if you have experienced the wrongful death of a family member. If your loved one has lost their life as a result of another person’s or company’s negligence, you most likely have many questions about the situation and its possible outcomes.
Here are a few things you need to know about a wrongful death claim:
- Your First Step should be to Hire a Lawyer. Your attorney can help you determine if a claim can be filed for the death of your loved one. If you contact me, I will help you understand the process that you will encounter and determine if you meet the statute of limitations. I can set you up for success from the beginning of your claim.
- There are Many Possible Causes of Wrongful Death. Many wrongful death claims are due to negligence, such as workplace injuries, car accidents, medical malpractice, or product liabilities. While most wrongful death cases occur because of negligence, if your family member died from an intentional act such as murder or homicide, you may be entitled to wrongful death compensation as well.
- An Investigation Will Be Completed. As your lawyer, I will work to determine the damages that the wrongful death caused. I will develop evidence that supports the compensation you seek.
- A Lawyer Will Work Toward a Fair Settlement. Through negotiations or even a trial, if needed, an attorney will help you pursue financial justice.
