How a Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help | Filing a Claim
In wrongful death cases, it is a lot harder to bring the claim properly. It’s not the same as an injury case where someone gets hurt in a crash, then brings the claim against the negligent party’s insurance. For wrongful death, your loved one has passed, and someone needs to bring the claim for them on the negligent party’s insurance. If it is done incorrectly, the insurance company can throw away the claim. This is where having a team of experienced Newhall wrongful death attorneys can save your claim for you. They will know exactly who can bring the claim.
How a Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help | Statute of Limitations
Something you might not already be aware of is the statute of limitations in California. In most cases, you or the claimant will have two years from the date of the injury that caused the death of your loved one or the date of their death to get the claim brought. The finer details will have to be sorted out by your attorney. There are exceptions to this rule. If the injury is involving, for example, a government entity, your statute of limitations may be a lot shorter. Your attorney will make sure that everything is done well before this time limitation. You don’t want to wait until your two years has almost run out to talk to an attorney. They might not be able to get what they need to get done to make this case work.
If you are worried about having a successful case, the best thing is to sit down with one of our experienced Newhall wrongful death attorneys and talk through the logistics of your case. Let our dedication work for you.
