A wrongful death claim isn’t just about the money. For families who are torn apart from the loss of a loved one, money does little more than take care of the serious financial burdens that result. These families want one thing – justice. The person(s) or company(s) that are at fault for your loved one’s untimely passing should not be allowed to get away with their negligence and wrongdoing. They must be held legally responsible in a court of law, and they must be penalized in a way that will strongly encourage them to never make the same mistake again.
Filing a wrongful death claim can be daunting and confusing. There are special procedures and rules to filing a claim and negotiating a fair settlement. Taking a case to trial or to an alternative dispute resolution like arbitration involves specific and precise processes that can challenge a grieving family.
In such situations, you may believe that trusting your insurance company to handle your claim is the best option. However, insurance companies are invested in their profits, not in your best interests. A dedicated wrongful death attorney can defend your rights, guide you through the legal process, and advocate for you in negotiations and in court.
