Compassionate Help For Family Members With Wrongful Death Claims
Even though it may be the farthest thing from your mind, it is important to think about whether you want to pursue legal action against the person who caused a fatal accident. The purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit is to obtain compensation for the immediate family members of the person who was killed due to the negligent actions of another.
The insurance company will have an investigator at the accident scene as soon as possible in an attempt to limit their liability. By taking decisive legal action, you can help ensure that you present a strong and compelling case designed to counter the arguments of the insurance company. Pictures of the accident scene can be taken, witnesses interviewed and valuable evidence preserved. However, if you wait too long to pursue legal action, this evidence will disappear and your chances for recovery in a wrongful death suit will diminish rapidly.
In Minnesota, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed as many as three years after the fatal accident. However, we encourage you not to wait that long. As hard as it may be, you and your family members will be better served if you secure legal advice regarding a wrongful death lawsuit as soon as possible.
