Is my situation a wrongful death lawsuit?

The basic definition of a wrongful death claim is when an individual is killed at the fault of another person. Most often these are “accidents”, but not just simple accidents. These situations involve negligence or malpractice on the part of the defendant. There are many different types of situations where this happens including:

  • Auto accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defamation
  • Assault

There are many other situations where a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought to court. You may be unsure if your case qualifies, therefore, contacting a wrongful death law firm is your best option.

Where should I begin?

If you’re reading this article, you’ve already begun. You’re starting to gather information about what is involved and if your situation qualifies as a wrongful death. There are a couple things you should do when you first start.

Research

Chances are you haven’t had to look for a lawyer before, much less a wrongful death lawyer, so you probably feel in over your head. You might be surprised where you can turn. Ask your friends and family and other people in your network first. You may find someone you trust has a recommendation for you that you feel good about.

Additionally, use Google to see a wrongful death law firm in your area. Check to see if the firm has any Google reviews for you to look over. Sites like Yelp will give you an overview of firms in your area, and Avvo will show you lawyers specifically.

Ask Questions

When you do narrow down your search it’s important to get to know the people that may represent your case. You should come up with a list of questions that are important to you, but here are some that should go on any list:

  • How long have you been practicing?
    This will give you a sense of the years of experience the firms wrongful death lawyers have. It’s not necessary to have the most experience to be talented, but you’ll get a sense for what you’re comfortable with.

 

  • Have you dealt with wrongful death cases before?
    Having experience with your specific type of situation is ideal and will give the wrongful death attorney you work with insider knowledge that can help your case. You might also find this information on their website.

 

  • How often will we meet?
    Do you want to be informed often or would you prefer a hands off approach? Knowing your answer and learning how the firm you work with operates can be significant. It will also give you an idea how busy the firm is, which may not work for you.

 

  • What are your fees?
    This is something you’re probably already wondering about so it’s good to be able to ask the wrongful death law firm about costs. Not only will this give you an idea of what you can afford, but also it informs you of how transparent the firm is. Having transparency is key in a trusting relationship with all wrongful death lawyers.
