Have You Lost A Loved One?

It can be hard to find the mental energy necessary to consider taking legal action after you have lost a loved one to a tragic accident. No loss is more devastating. We know that. The most successful wrongful death lawsuits must begin as soon as possible.

How Does Taking Action Now Help?

There are a number of ways that starting sooner, as hard as it may be, is going to help:

  • Gathering evidence right away preserves it — Witnesses move away. Surveillance camera footage is recorded over. Wrecked cars are disassembled for parts. Starting to gather evidence from an accident right away helps ensure that all evidence necessary to win is recovered.
  • It avoids problems with statutes of limitations — It may be hard to believe, but there are limitations on how long you can wait to file a lawsuit. Astonishingly, that period of time is actually shorter for wrongful death claims than nonfatal personal injury claims.

Educating Yourself Now Is Free

No matter what you think you may eventually decide about pursuing legal action for your loved one's death, you owe it to yourself to learn more about what can be done to hold the responsible party accountable and to ensure that you and your loved ones have the justice and compensation you deserve.
