When a life is cut short by someone else’s negligence, the law in this country says that the only remedy available is monetary compensation. And, after a wrongful death accident, you may be thinking that it is inappropriate to contact a wrongful death lawyer too soon after the death, because of what other people might think or say. But I must say that it is your choice to determine when you are ready to contact a wrongful death lawyer to back you up in your case.
As your wrongful death lawyer, we play an important role in every wrongful accident case. We help determine if you have a viable claim and make sure that no important deadlines for filing are missed. We deal with complex legal issues involving tort law, probate law, contract law, and insurance law. We ensure that the claim is moving forward at a time when you may need to focus on helping yourself and your family work through the emotional loss. We take steps to preserve evidence and testimony which might be lost if too much time has passed.
However, you must also know that wrongful deaths are not always caused by individual members of the civilian populace. During these instances, our role of wrongful death lawyers on the prosecutor side is to prove that negligence was the reason for the death currently under discussion. Our role is to represent a defendant and prove that the client was not negligent and didn’t cause the death of the victims involved.
The legal process can truly be intimidating and confusing. A major part of us as your wrongful death lawyer is to demystify the process for you. We take the time to explain things in plain English for you to be able to make informed decisions that are in your best interest for the long term. We commit ourselves in representing and protecting the rights of individuals and families.
We are here to help you win the wrongful death case that you’ve been a part of. For the people in the prosecution, the focus of your concern must be on getting better – protecting your right to compensation – and getting the compensation and justice you deserve as a survivor of someone who was wrongfully killed. And for those people in the defense, your main concern is to prove that the accused has not been negligent in his actions.
