Putting Aside Your Misconceptions and Fears About Bringing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Losing a loved one is extremely difficult. The grief can be overwhelming and can lay low the strongest of personalities. When you lose a loved one in a tragic and unsuspected manner, your feelings of loss can escalate and leave you unable to do what you need to do.

If your loss is because of the negligent actions of another party or entity, you should not hesitate to discuss the situation with a skilled wrongful death attorney. You may feel uncomfortable reaching out for legal advice, but you should try to focus on the good that can come out of seeking justice for your tragic loss. You have the right to seek compensation so your family has financial protection in the future, those who were negligent can be held liable, and others may not suffer the same loss.

Fears and misconceptions that may run through your mind after your loss may include the following:

  • Bringing a wrongful death lawsuit means I am in for a lengthy trial. The reality is that most cases settle before a trial. 
  • I have plenty of time to sue. What’s the rush? Since there is only a limited amount of time in which to bring your lawsuit for wrongful death, reaching out to an attorney helps you avoid being barred from suing because of the statute of limitations. In addition, an attorney can start an investigation immediately and thereby avoid the loss or compromise of valuable evidence in your case.
  • Hiring an attorney for a wrongful death action is expensive. Since your attorney represents you on a contingency basis, you can expect to pay no legal fees unless you receive compensation in a settlement or after a trial
