Job of a Wrongful Death Attorney

by LA Injury Group

A wrongful death attorney has many roles to fill for their clients. We understand that. The period after the passing of a loved one is one of the most difficult periods that anyone ever has to go through in their life. Grief is always difficult, no matter the circumstances. However, the grieving process can be even more challenging if the passing of the loved one was caused through the actions of another. In this blog, we will discuss some ways that the LA Injury Group can help you with a wrongful death suit. Additionally, we’ll show our qualifications.

These are always the hardest cases. There are no easy ones, not in personal injury law. Something terrible has always occurred to the client, and compensation is the way that the law has of making it right. With a wrongful death case, there’s no real way to “make it right.” Nothing can make up for the loss of someone you love. That’s true of any amount of money or kind of compensation. Financial compensation is the way that the law can help.

After suffering the passing of a loved one, it’s important to keep in mind that you can be entitled to this money. Initially, for some it may feel awkward or wrong to pursue a wrongful death case. Your loved one would want you to be happy. They would want you to receive some kind of financial compensation. It can’t make up for their absence, but it can help. The money can always make things a bit better. In many cases, the financial compensation from a wrongful death case helps someone through the grieving process immensely. That money can serve as a transition, taking them through the period of grief to the next stage of their life.

How to Know if You Have a Claim

Many of the people who reach out to us about a wrongful death case do so with the same question: “do I have a case?” There seems to be some misconception out there as to what constitutes a wrongful death case and what does not. There are complicated answers to this question and there are short answers. The shorter, most general version is: “you do if the passing of your loved one was caused by someone else’s negligence or malice.” Obviously, the short answer can be a bit confusing. For many people, they might ask themselves: “how can I tell if the passing of my loved one was caused by negligence or malice?”

The simplest way to discover if you have a case is to talk to us. Really. That’s the easiest and most direct. Simply give us a call or send us a message through our site. There, you can set up a free consultation. In fact, that’s one of the many reasons that we offer free consultations: we want to make it as easy as possible for people to find out if they have a case or not. To be clear, that’s true of all the different kinds of cases we handle: personal injuries, accidents, slip and fall, wrongful death and many others.

At a meeting with us, we can give you definite answers. You don’t have to worry and wonder about whether or not you have a case. Instead of living with that uncertainty, allowing it to grow into anxiety, find out for yourself. Indeed, (and we can’t say this enough) there’s no downside to reaching out to us about a potential wrongful death case. Nothing bad can happen. The worst that can occur is that we tell you that, unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that you have a wrongful death case. That’s it. It’s a simple, gentle no.

Compare that to the potential upside of coming to us. If you come to us unsure as to whether or not the passing of you loved one could make for a successful wrongful death suit, we could tell you that you do have a case. Then, we could help you get all of the compensation you deserve for everything that you’ve been through. It’s a great way to get money that can help you through all of the difficult things that you’re going through right now. Without going to an attorney, you might just be leaving that money on the table, thus making a difficult time even harder on you and your family.

Many Different Kinds of Damages

From a compensation standpoint, part of what makes wrongful death cases so unique is that you can file for many different kinds of damages. Indeed, it can seem like there are more kinds of damages available for wrongful death cases than in many others. Some are economic, some are non-economic damages. To be clear, just because a kind of damage means “non-economic,” you’ll still be receiving money as compensation for it. That includes “pain and suffering,” “inability to enjoy life’s pleasures,” and so forth.

Many of our clients come to us looking for compensation to take care of all of the financial concerns that arise in the wake of a loved one’s passing. These include funeral and burial costs, any medical expenses that your loved one accrued during the end of their life, and so forth. Additionally, this can also help you to receive the lost wages that your loved one would’ve made had they continued at their job. You don’t have to just lose that money forever. Instead, through the work of experienced attorneys, we can help you to get everything that you deserve.

Taking On Insurance Companies

The insurance companies are just one of the obstacles that your wrongful death suit will have to deal with. Insurance companies have a business model that is predicated on the idea that if you don’t get all of the money you can for your claim, then they’ll make more. This is true in personal injury cases, slip and falls, wrongful death and essentially any kind of case. So, they have a vested interest in making sure that you get less than you deserve for your claim.

By contrast, our business model is the exact opposite. While they get money when you get less, we only get money when you win. So, (to state it bluntly) if you don’t win compensation, then we don’t get paid. This should put to rest, once and for all the question of “who’s on your side?” At the LA Injury Group, we’ve helped so many different people to get through difficult wrongful death cases over the years. We understand how hard this time can be, and we endeavor to make it easier on you.

When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a wrongful death case, you’re rarely dealing with it alone. It’s important to note that no matter how difficult the time can be, you probably still have others around you who are going through the same thing. Your loved ones, other surviving family members and more – they have your back. They’re there for you. They want you to be able to have the space that you need to grieve. Indeed, this is one area where having the right lawyers to handle your wrongful death case can make everything easier.

When you’re lawyers are handling your wrongful death case, you don’t have to worry about it. That means that it’s one less thing for you to concern yourself. Sure, you may want to be updated on the case, but for many, the time period after a loved one passes is an incredibly busy time; even if it feels like all you’re doing is sitting around and mourning. That’s OK. That’s giving you the space and time to grieve. To make the entire process easier on yourself, give us a call at (818) 240-1800 or send us a message through our site for a free consultation.
