Losing a loved one is a horrific experience and it is even more so when it is due to an accident caused by a third party. Whether it is a simple fender bender or a multi-car pile up, no excuse can bring your loved one back, nor can anything or anyone say or do anything to fill the void. Knowing your rights in the case of a wrongful death and what you are entitled to under the law is essential. Consulting an experienced injury attorney will help you know what you can do.
Wrongful death cases deal with sensitive issues and trying to negotiate an appropriate settlement is not something that an aggrieved person should do on their own.
Whether it involves a commercial trucker or trucking company, a taxi company, a ride share company like Uber or Lyft, or another private party, having legal representation is essential to ensuring you get what you deserve.
