What Is A Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death case involves a family member who was killed because of the negligence of someone else. For example, if a parent has a child who is killed in an automobile accident because of the negligence of another driver, that parent is able to bring a wrongful death action or lawsuit against that third party.

If you are in a position of needing to engage a wrongful death attorney to represent you in a claim, call the Clekis Law Firm for help. What should you ask about when you call?

Ask Our Wrongful Death Attorney About the Statute of Limitations

The laws in all states establish a timeframe in which a wrongful death lawsuit must be called. This is called the statute of limitations. If a lawsuit in a wrongful death case is not filed by that deadline, you likely will be forever precluded from obtaining compensation for the wrongful death of a family member.

During the initial consultation with our wrongful death attorney, it is crucial that you discuss the statute of limitations and the date the accident occurred to ensure that all deadlines associated with the case are met.

The Value Of Our Wrongful Death Attorney

Typically, our wrongful death attorneys do not charge a fee unless they obtain a settlement or judgment in favor of your case. One area of discussion you need to have with our wrongful death attorney is about attorney fees. You should also ask our wrongful death attorney about what costs you will be responsible for paying.

Time Line for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

It is important that you have realistic expectations about the lawsuit process. Ask specific questions of our wrongful death attorney regarding the time line and intricacies of your wrongful death lawsuit. We are open and honest with our clients.
