The last thing anyone wants to think about following the death of a loved one is retaining a lawyer. Emotions are high and there are many questions. When dealing with wrongful death claims, our aim is to help provide answers and to help take away as many burdens as possible from the family.
Our wrongful death team is experienced in dealing with the legal issues involved in fatality cases. Unfortunately, following a death, investigative agencies and interested parties often “shut down.” Information is not released and involved individuals are reluctant to share information. This response can be frustrating for families. The experienced members of our wrongful death team and our investigators know how to cut through the red tape when possible.
Wrongful Death Attorneys Providing Guidance
Families are often overwhelmed following the death of a loved one. They not only have to cope with the loss, but they have countless final arrangements that need to be made. Our wrongful death attorneys understand how trying these times can be. Our aim is to take as much weight as possible off of our clients’ shoulders. Once retained, we try to make our investigation unintrusive. We try to operate in the background where possible so families can focus on everything else on their plate. In addition to providing guidance about the law, we pride ourselves as being available for non-legal matters when appropriate. Having dealt with wrongful death cases more often that we’d like, we’re familiar with the steps that need to be taken following the passing of a loved one.
The Dangers of Waiting in Wrongful Death Cases
Understandably, families often want to wait to contact attorneys until after final arrangements are made or longer. Unfortunately, this waiting can have negative legal consequences. Critical evidence that exists immediately following an incident must be preserved as soon as possible. There are also often short time deadlines within which to bring a claim. It is important, therefore, that an investigation be undertaken on the surviving family’s behalf as quickly as possible after a fatal event. If we investigate a case and determine that there is not a viable claim, we never charge our clients any out of pocket fees or costs. When we take a case, we only charge a fee if and when we recover money for the family.
No Fee Promise
We never get paid unless and until we first recover money for you. If there is no recovery, there is no fee. Many wrongful death law firms bury in fine print that clients are responsible for costs if a case is not successful. We don’t. With our no fee promise, you’ll never pay us any out-of-pocket fees or costs—no exceptions. It’s the promise from every wrongful death attorney on our team to you, and we put it in writing.
