Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Many people hesitate to take legal action after their loved one dies because they do not wish to be involved in a long court proceeding. This is especially true if another person’s intentional violence caused the death of their loved one and the family is already dealing with a criminal case. However, what many people don’t realize is that it’s fairly common for wrongful death claims to be settled before they reach the courtroom. Families can hire a wrongful death lawyer to file a claim, put together a strong case, and negotiate with the defendant. These negotiations often take place during informal arbitration or mediation. If these discussions are not successful, having a case that’s ready to go to court — and a wrongful death lawyer who understands how the local court system will proceed — can be incredibly beneficial.
The time it takes to complete a wrongful death claim and the exact damages that may be included in a settlement will depend on circumstantial factors. It’s best to speak with a wrongful death lawyer before taking legal action so you can get a better idea of what your claim may look like.
