3 Points About Car Accident Wrongful Deaths Claims

There are three important points to know about car accident fatality cases.

  1.  They are extremely emotional cases. Why? Because by its very definition, a wrongful death case involves a family members DEATH. The family wants answers to what happened. They deserve those answers from the attorney quickly and professionally.
  2. In any wrongful death claim, you should hire an attorney ASAP. Why? Because an attorney can immediately have his private investigator go to the scene of the fatality and interview witnesses, talk to the state police, and develop the theme or theory of the case quickly.
  3. It is likely that a Wrongful death case will be contested by the insurance company for the other side. The reason for that is because the insurance companies liability is highest in a wrongful death case. This is unlike a soft tissue car accident case in which the insurance companies exposure is only the state minimum of $15,000.  Since the insurance company could get hit for millions of dollars in a wrongful death trial, they will usually fight these cases to the end.

It is crucially important to have an experienced trial attorney on your side when a loved one is killed because of the carelessness of someone else.
