A death of a loved one is hard enough when it comes naturally. When it comes because of someone’s actions it is traumatizing. Because of this, there is a legal doctrine called wrongful death. A wrongful death action occurs when someone is killed in an unnatural or in a natural way but much sooner than normal because of someone’s action either negligent or intentional.
When you have a loved one die in this type of situation it can be difficult to know what to do or even if you can do anything. However, the law does afford remedies for these type of scenarios. It is important that you make sure you collect all documents including medical records, police reports and/or videos, pictures, or even audio recordings of what may have occurred. Basically, anything that can help put together what actually occurred.
If you do not have any of this then do not worry, we will do our own investigation to find out what truly occurred, and we will let you know if there is truly a case or not. These type of cases and the evidence involved are often time sensitive so it is important that you contact a lawyer/law firm as soon as possible. Wrongful death cases have different statute of limitations (think of it like an expiration date for a lawsuit). Likewise, businesses only keep files for so long, security footage as well is only saved for fixed periods of time. The investigation must begin as soon as possible, in order to not lose any evidence there may be.
At no point will you have to pay anything out of your own pocket and we will not make any money unless you do. These type of cases are all handled on a standard contingency fee which most if not all attorneys of this type use. Because of this, we suggest you shop around different lawyers/law firms and see which is best for you.
