3 Reasons to Get a Lawyer for Your Wrongful Death Claim

by Staff Blogger | October 24th, 2019

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences in life. It can be even harder to deal with when the deceased was the primary income earner for your household. If your loved one’s death was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim to get compensation for expenses such as medical bills, lost wages, and loss of companionship.

However, wrongful death claims are often difficult to build and prove. Having an experienced Roanoke wrongful death lawyer on your side can be helpful throughout this process in three key ways:

  1. We’ll handle all communication with the insurance company—When you’re grieving your loss, the last thing you want is a constant back and forth with the insurance company. After getting a lawyer on your side, the insurance company will have to communicate with us instead.
  2. We’ll determine how much money you’re owed—Wrongful death claims are often more complex than personal injury claims. That’s because there are more factors involved, including loss of companionship and consortium. We’ll calculate exactly how much money your family is owed for what you’re going through.
  3. We’ll fight to get you every penny—Insurance companies remain profitable by reducing or denying claims whenever they can. We won’t let the insurance company mistreat you or dismiss you after the death of your loved one, and we’ll fight to maximize your chances of getting full damages.
