Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Every vehicle accident carries the potential for civil liability. This is especially true in the case of a fatality. If there is evidence that the death was the result of negligence or misconduct, the family of the deceased can initiate a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. Regardless whether the allegations are true, a lawsuit can cost you big in time and money. If you have been named in a wrongful death lawsuit, it is important to work with an attorney to resolve the case in a timely manner.
In the event you are named in a lawsuit, you should seek professional legal counsel immediately. Most defense attorneys provide consultations at little or no cost. A consultation will typically last thirty minutes to one hour. The attorney will meet with you, review the facts of the case, and discuss options and recommendations with you. You are not going to love every attorney you meet so this is the time to decide if this particular attorney is a good fit for you. Assuming you decide it is a good fit, you may choose to retain the services of the attorney and work together toward a resolution to the case.
