We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, and we understand why her husband is asking for your advice. It can be overwhelming to know what to do after you lose a loved one in a fatal car accident. Some surviving spouses have mixed feelings about contacting a Milwaukee accident lawyer. They want to make sure that their family’s rights are protected but they do not want to relive the tragedy or profit from their loved one’s death.
These feelings are understandable. However, it is important to contact an experienced Milwaukee personal injury lawyer after the death of a spouse. A Milwaukee attorney who is experienced with wrongful death cases and is sympathetic to the needs of a surviving spouse will be committed to getting the family the recovery that they deserve. A recovery will never allow a family to profit from a loved one’s death. However, a legal recovery can provide very necessary relief for outstanding medical bills, past and future lost income, out-of-pocket costs, and pain and suffering.
Your friend’s husband has nothing to lose by calling a Milwaukee wrongful death attorney, but he may lose the right to file a lawsuit and protect his family’s rights if he waits too long to make the call. Thus, we would encourage you to encourage him to call a Wisconsin car accident attorney today at 1-800-800-5678 or 414-223-4800 for more information.
