1. Choosing the Best Attorney
Wrongful death cases can be difficult. You’ve lost a loved one and now you need to try to put the pieces of your life back together. Finding an attorney is probably the last thing that you want to do, but that being said, you need someone who’s going to help you get the compensation that you deserve. You cannot put a price on your loss, but our office wants to do everything that we possibly can to help you and to comfort you through this time.
Picking an attorney can be tough because there are a lot of people out there who are looking to help you. That being said, you want to find the person who you think that you can trust and who you feel most comfortable with. You also want to pick somebody who has extensive experience handling cases just like yours.
2. Case Timeline
This is difficult to answer because many factors go into it. The most important factor though is whether or not the insurance company is being reasonable or unreasonable.
If the insurance company is being reasonable, you can normally push the case through relatively quickly. If the insurance company is being unreasonable, then it could result in having to bring a lawsuit, which can take an extensive period of time. The one thing you need to keep in mind is that our office is always going to do everything that we possibly can to move your case forward as quickly and efficiently as possible.
3. Case Value
Determining the value of a wrongful death case can be difficult. It’s tough to put a dollar value on the loss of a life; however, our office does everything that we possibly can to make sure that we maximize your recovery.
4. Available Damages
One type of damages are damages known as punitive damages. Punitive damages are damages that punish people for their actions. Depending on the circumstances that surround the wrongful death, you may be entitled to damages that punish the person for the death of your loved one. Another type of damages are damages that compensate you for the wrongful death that has occurred.
You deserve to be compensated properly for your loss. We want to do whatever we possibly can to make sure that we maximize the amount that you’re owed.
