How Our Law Firm Can Help Your Family

As a surviving family member, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to seek justice on behalf of your close relative that was taken away from you too soon. The other side should be held liable for their wrongdoing, and that can be accomplished through a wrongful death claim. Our law firm can help your family by:

  • Independent Investigation: Our legal team conducts thorough investigations into fatal accident cases to identify all negligent parties. A comprehensive analysis of the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident will help us build a strong case on behalf of surviving family members.
  • Communication: Our legal team is dedicated to maintaining regular communication with our clients regarding their cases. We understand the importance of updating our clients regarding developments in their case, as well as answering their questions through phone calls. When your family turns to us for assistance, we will also handle all written and verbal communication with the insurance carrier on your behalf. This will work to ensure that your family is not taken advantage of by insurers and also allow you all the time needed to grieve your loss.
  • Network of Experts: Expert witness testimony is essential to the outcome of a wrongful death claim. For instance, an insurance company may dispute the value and validity of economic and non-economic damages. A Modesto wrongful death lawyer may work with an expert witness, such as an economist, who can provide insight into the decedent’s future income they would have earned and provided to their family if not for the fatal incident. An attorney from our law firm will work with other experts in the field to build a strong and compelling case for maximum financial recovery.

Remember that you generally have two years to take legal action against a negligent party or entity for the loss of a loved one, per CCP 335.1. Therefore, it is crucial to work with an experienced wrongful death lawyer, such as ours, from AutoAccident.com. For information about our law firm’s services, contact us for a free case evaluation.
