Question:

How do I pick the best attorney for my wrongful death claim?

Answer:

Choosing a Wrongful Death AttorneyI was contacted recently by somebody who was contemplating bringing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one, and she wanted to know the best way to go about selecting a firm to represent her in her wrongful death claim. I advised her that there are multiple factors involved, but some of the most important ones would be to ensure that you select a firm that has a tremendous amount of experience in handling wrongful death claims. You want a firm that handles wrongful death claims as a focus area. You don’t want to hire a firm that deals with family law or criminal law on a regular basis, but a firm that focuses on personal injury cases on a regular basis, including wrongful death.

You also want to ensure that you’ve got a trial firm. You don’t want to retain somebody who hasn’t been to trial or doesn’t go to trial on a regular basis because the insurance companies know that. If you have a trial firm on your side, the insurance company is much more likely that they’re going to take your claim seriously and you’re going to get the maximum value out of your case. At the end of the day, if necessary, if you have a trial firm on your side, they will take the case all the way through a jury verdict, if necessary, in order to ensure that you and your loved ones have the maximum amount of value out of your case.
