When you lose a loved one, your priority may be to take time and grieve. Most people will shy away from taking any legal action because they don’t want the process of handling a legal battle when the wound is still fresh.
At Frankel Injury Law, we’ve worked with multiple clients who were hesitant to file a wrongful death claim immediately after losing a loved one. This is very understandable. However, sometimes filing a lawsuit immediately is important because you get a step closer in seeking justice. Here’s why hiring a wrongful death lawyer is important in your case.
Get the justice you deserve
Losing someone you love because of another party’s negligence is extremely heartbreaking. Though a successful lawsuit will not bring back your loved one, part of the healing process is ensuring that the negligent party is held accountable for their actions. A successful case also means you can recover some of the monetary losses that were as a result of the accident. We know how wrongful death cases can be extremely complicated but with the help of a wrongful death lawyer, you get to know your rights and understand the legal options available for your case. A good lawyer will help ensure that the case is thoroughly investigated and filed properly so that your family can recover all the damages available.
Understand the damages available to you
Wrongful death cases are complicated. The rules can be extremely complex and it’s not easy for you to determine who can bring the claim or if you have the right to recover damages. With the help of an experienced lawyer, you can determine the amount and types of damages applicable to your case. For instance, if the deceased person was the breadwinner, your lawyer can help you to claim for lost financial support. You may also be entitled to other forms of damages such as loss of support and companionship.
Get help in settling wrongful death claims
Sometimes wrongful death claims settle quickly, others may take months or even years to resolve. Most of the cases are settled without going to trial and some even before you file a lawsuit. What’s certain is that you need expert legal advice to help you understand the law and collect evidence for your case. Having the right legal team by your side means you don’t have to handle any unnecessary paperwork or get anxious about the situation. You can focus on grieving and healing from your loss while you’re assured that someone experienced is working to pursue your rights.
