Proving Your Wrongful Death Case
Wrongful death is a difficult situation, and taking legal action can be difficult for a family to contend with. This is especially true after unexpectedly losing a loved one. However, know that there are critical components that must be present when pursuing a wrongful death claim. While you and your family could be entitled to compensation for your losses, meeting with a lawyer from our firm could be the best way to initiate the process. We will review your claim to determine if the four elements of wrongful death are available in your case:
- The party responsible was negligent for your loved one’s wrongful death.
- The responsible party owed a duty of care that was ultimately breached.
- Negligence resulted in your loved ones passing.
- There are financial losses such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, loss of income, and more.
If these elements are present, we will work closely with you to strategize your case against the parties who need to be held responsible.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
Typically, before moving towards litigation in the form of a wrongful death lawsuit, it may be appropriate to demand settlement from the insurance company in the form of a wrongful death claim. This is often the most appropriate way to move forward because, through negotiations, our team may obtain fair compensation. However, it’s best to proceed with caution by retaining a lawyer with experience in representing wrongful death cases. Insurance companies can be challenging to negotiate with and will be looking at every opportunity to settle your case for as little as possible. However, when you work with a seasoned professional, you will have someone who will gather evidence and negotiate with insurance companies to obtain the best possible outcome. With our skills, we will know when negotiations should continue, accept an offer, and pursue litigation.
