Wrongful Death

AGGRESSIVE WRONGFUL DEATH ATTORNEYS

 

When you hire our law offices we will sign a professional services agreement with you.  This agreement is usually a percentage of the amount recovered.  This makes it possible for you to hire an experienced and aggressive law firm to represent your interests.

 

We offer a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your situation.  If our law firms cannot help you, we will refer you to another law firm that will better suit your needs.  It will not cost you anything to find the best attorney to meet your needs.  A fee agreement is usually a percentage of the amount recovered.  This makes it possible for you to hire experienced and aggressive law firms to represent your interest.  It gives everyone access to the justice system and representation and levels the playing field when you go against the insurance companies and lawyers that they can hire.

SHOULD I TALK TO INSURANCE COMPANIES ABOUT MY ACCIDENT?

 

You should talk to YOUR insurance company because you likely have a contractual duty to do so, however, you may want to first consult with your own attorney.  We would be pleased to visit with you prior to the call to your own insurance company.

 

In terms of the insurance company representative, for the other person/adverse party, if you intend to hire an attorney, you should speak with your attorney first and be sure that the lawyer is available before you give any type of statement to an insurance company from the other person/adverse party.

 

TIME LIMITS

 

You must timely file a claim or your case may be forever lost based upon time limitations.
