When you lose a loved one as a result of another person’s negligence, you will likely have many questions such as whether it could have been avoided, who is at fault, and what went wrong. Our Valdosta wrongful death lawyers help families get answers and see those who are responsible for the loved one’s death are held responsible.
The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences any person goes through in their lifetime. When the loss is sudden and unexpected, it is that much more difficult to deal with. Your thoughts are where they should be, with the person you’ve lost, and not on the practical things that arise whenever someone passes away. After the initial shock of losing your family member has eased, you may have questions about whether there is any legal recourse against the person responsible for the death. One of those practical things is deciding if it’s appropriate to file a claim against the person or company believed to be responsible for the death of your loved one. The first step in this process is determining the right attorney to assist you.
Since insurance companies have vast experience in evaluating personal injury claims and will seek to obtain the lowest settlement possible, it is important to have a person with considerable experience dealing with insurance companies on your behalf. Generally it is best to retain an attorney who regularly handles wrongful death claims and will be prepared to institute litigation on your behalf if the insurance company is unwilling to settle your claim for a fair value.
We are deeply sorry for the loss which you have suffered which has led you to seek the advice of an attorney. If we may be of assistance to you and you wish to discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer, please give us a call at (229) 242-4649 or contact us online for a free consultation.
