What are the steps in a wrongful death claim?
Recently, a family came into our office regarding a potential wrongful death case. These are the most tragic cases that our firm has to deal with because it’s the loss of a loved one. They wanted to know what the steps of the case would entail. First, we do our investigation. We find out how the accident happened and who will ultimately be liable for our client’s damages. We then contact all insurance companies that would be involved. When we have gathered all the evidence, witness statements, and photographs, we then submit that to the insurance company for what’s called a demand. The insurance company then has 30 days to evaluate the claim. If the initial offer that the insurance company makes is unreasonable, then we will file a lawsuit on behalf of our clients.
