You will never get over the death of your loved one. You know that your life has been irrevocably changed. Yet you long for the day when the business surrounding your loved one’s death will be over. You have planned the funeral, you have made insurance policy claims, and you are in the process of changing names on various accounts. You may wonder if you can handle going through a Milwaukee wrongful death lawsuit.
Will a wrongful death claim prolong this difficult period or will it help your family in the future? Before you can decide it is important to understand what happens in the wrongful death settlement process and to speak with an experienced and compassionate Milwaukee wrongful death lawyer.
What Is the Wrongful Death Settlement Process Like?
While each wrongful death case, and settlement, is unique there are some common elements of the wrongful death settlement process that you should know. For example, often:
- The first step in obtaining a settlement is contacting an experienced lawyer who can advise you of your rights, help you understand your potential recovery, and file a lawsuit, if you decide that a lawsuit is the right thing to do.
- After the lawsuit has been filed, your lawyer will investigate exactly what happened to your loved one and gather information from the defendants and others. This will help gather the evidence necessary to make persuasive arguments for a certain recovery.
- At any time, your lawyer may engage in settlement negotiations with the defendants. You will of course be apprised of important developments and retain the right to approve or disapprove any settlement offer.
- Many of the details of obtaining a wrongful death settlement will be handled with your attorney who is mindful of how difficult this situation is for you.
