Hiring a Wrongful Death Lawyer | What to Consider
To find the right attorney, the first thing you have to look for is being able to establish a level of comfort and trust with that attorney, and that begins in the first meeting, whether it’s over the phone or in-person. Next, you need to hire someone who specializes in personal injury law and has experience in wrongful death cases specifically. Wrongful death cases are different than other cases and require specific experience. Lastly, you need to find a trial attorney. Trial attorneys work cases differently. They work cases from the beginning as if they are going to trial. Beyond that, insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are, and that means that you’re more likely to get a fair settlement offer without having to go to trial. If in the rare case you do have to go to trial, that attorney will be ready to represent you and get you the best result possible.
Hiring a Wrongful Death Lawyer | How Long Will the Case Take?
Recently, we were contacted by a client who had lost a loved one, and she asked us about how long her wrongful death case would take in Texas. Unfortunately, there isn’t a clear answer in the beginning. How the process works is, first, we submit a demand to the responsible third-parties asking for fair and just compensation. If they respond and it’s a number that we can work with, we’ll negotiate with them. If it isn’t, then we file a lawsuit. After we file a lawsuit, we have to serve the defendants. After the defendants are served, they have 30 days to respond. Once they respond to the lawsuit, they will have attorneys representing them, and we immediately contact those attorneys to get a trial date, and then there’s an end in sight.
