Cost to File a Wrongful Death Attorney
The experienced trial attorneys at Chavez Law take these cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that the attorney gets paid if and only if there is a recovery, either by going to trial or through forcing a settlement on the insurance company or the negligent corporation that caused the death.
Determining the Claim Value
Clients who come to us because they have lost a loved one, such as a husband or a wife or a parent or a child, often wonder what full and fair compensation mean in their case. In instances in which a family has lost a loved one, the family is entitled to the lost income that that father or mother or spouse would have provided them. Another thing that the law allows for, in terms of compensation, is damages for emotional pain and suffering. Other types of damages are the physical pain and suffering that that person went through as a result of dying. Other damages involve what the survivors— the family members— are entitled to. They’re entitled to full and fair compensation for the emotional trauma resulting from the loss of their loved one that was caused by a negligent corporation or person.
When I have clients who have lost a loved one – a spouse, a child, or a parent – due to a wrongful death incident, they often ask me how long a case will take. One of the factors, in fact the key factor, in a wrongful death case is whether or not the insurance company for the defendant who caused the wrongful death is negotiating in good faith. Let’s be absolutely clear – the only cases that go to trial are cases where the insurance company is unwilling to pay full and fair compensation for the horrible and tragic harms that they’ve caused clients. This is the greatest detriment to a quick resolution.
