Wrongful Death FAQ

While you can file a wrongful death claim on your own, having an experienced personal injury attorney can significantly improve your chances of securing a fair settlement. Personal injury attorneys have the expertise to navigate complex legal processes and negotiate with insurance companies.

Wrongful death is when a person loses their life due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, organization, or entity. Several key factors come into play to establish a strong case, such as:

  • Establishing Negligence or Malice: The defendant’s negligence or malicious intent must be evident.
  • Identifying Negligence or Similar Circumstances: Cases involving criminal behavior, medical malpractice, inadequate supervision, exposure to hazards, and more can be considered for a wrongful death claim.
  • Addressing Financial Strain: The loss should result in financial hardship for the surviving family members.

Family members pursuing wrongful death claims are eligible for various forms of compensation, such as:

  • Lost wages and employment benefits
  • Medical expenses and hospital stays
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of property
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain, suffering, emotional distress
  • Punitive damages for gross negligence

The initial phase of a wrongful death case centers on thorough research and investigation.

You can help to streamline this process by assembling all relevant documents, such as accident reports, medical records, insurance documentation, and more. Even before retaining an attorney, begin accumulating and organizing this data.

In the second phase, you and your attorney will explore the potential for a settlement. While settlements expedite financial recovery, their amounts may be lower than trial outcomes. Your attorney should provide guidance and help you make informed decisions about settlement options.

Many wrongful death attorneys, including Schneider Williamson, work on a contingency fee basis. This means we only get paid if you win your case. Fees are typically a percentage of the settlement amount, which makes legal representation accessible to those who need it.
