How will the family of a wrongful death victim get by financially? People who have suffered serious or catastrophic injury or who have lost a family member due to the negligence of another are entitled to fair and just compensation—not what the insurance company wants to pay. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 136,053 unintentional injury deaths in 2014. The families of the deceased will experience the loss of companionship and loss of future earnings.

Obtain the aid of a competent personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Legal representation is crucial for victims of negligence. Insurance company investigators are on the scene of accidents immediately, gathering and examining evidence, interviewing witnesses and working to shield the negligent from responsibility.
The family of a wrongful death victim should obtain competent, trusted counsel as soon as possible after the incident to make sure someone investigates and advocates on their behalf. For those who have delayed seeking help, it is even more important to retain the most experienced, aggressive legal counsel they can find.
