There is nothing worse than somebody close to you, such as a parent or child, dying as the result of another person’s mistake or negligence.
If you find yourself in this unenviable position, there are several things you should do as well as many things you should avoid.
First and foremost, you should set aside time to deal with your emotions and care for your family. This is one of the most difficult times of your life, and you need to give yourself time to grieve.
From there, you should consult with an experienced wrongful death attorney. If you don’t do so, you could be pressured into agreeing to a settlement that is not in your best interest. Worse yet, somebody may ask you to sign a document that releases them from liability.
Once you have a wrongful death attorney representing you, it becomes easier to make the right decisions while avoiding situations that would not be in your best interest.
