Are you looking for a wrongful death attorney? Dealing with the death of a loved one is always very painful. However, it is even more painful if the death is caused by another person’s carelessness. This issue is further complicated if the deceased was the sole breadwinner of the family. A wrongful death not only leaves a family both emotionally and fiscally harmed, it may cause a need to bring a lawsuit to be able to survive. Never feel bad about that. If someone was negligent and they have insurance, the insurance company can be made to pay for your losses.
Wrongful death is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another individual. As straightforward as this may seem, these cases are quite involving. The laws concerning wrongful death cases vary from one state to another. Here are some tips to keep in mind when hiring a wrongful death lawyer:
Communication is everything
The greatest trait of a wrongful death lawyer is the ability to communicate effectively with his/her clients. When you talk to your lawyer, he should be able to listen and answer all your questions knowledgeably. If you cannot reach a certain lawyer during the hiring process, you should strongly reconsider hiring him. A good lawyer should receive calls or answer them within a timely manner.
The lawyer you choose should be highly skilled and have plenty of experience in handling wrongful death cases. Find out if the lawyer has a proven track record in previous cases before agreeing to hire him.
Interview the lawyers
Most lawyers provide free consultations, so you should not be afraid to conduct as many interviews as possible. Talk to your prospective lawyers about the case and ask them for some advice. How would you handle my case if I hired you? How long will it take you to complete the case? Keep in mind that no lawyer can give you the exact time estimate.
Before the case goes to trial, your lawyer should discuss the possibility of settling with the defendant. If a settlement is not possible, the case must proceed to trial. For this reason, the attorney that you are considering needs to have experience in both litigation and settlement negotiation.
Wrongful death attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that you only have to pay up if you win the settlement. If you do not get compensation, you will not have to pay anything to the lawyer. Therefore, you should hire an attorney from a law firm with the financial ability to work on your case without asking you for money.
Ask as many questions as possible
You need to ask as many questions about the case and make sure that you get clear answers. You will find it easier to work with a forthcoming lawyer. A lawyer who knows his craft will be open and honest with you throughout the process. However, an over eager one will tell you anything that you want to hear in order to win you as a client.
You should ask for references from the lawyer’s office. When checking these references, ask about the success of their cases.
