There is a statute allowing heirs to bring an action against persons or entities negligently or intentionally causing the death of another. The action authorizes particular relatives to maintain the action on behalf of the entire family. Therefore, handling the claim requires knowledge of both the procedures involved, and steps required to pursue the claim for injuries and death.
Pursuing a wrongful death claim is often a difficult process for several reasons. First, even addressing the issue is often a painful process for the relatives. Second, the insurance companies generally defend the claims vigorously due to the size and severity of the claim. Third, the entire process takes time and money. We can often help with this, deferring at least compensation for attorney fees to the conclusion of the case.
