Wrongful Death Suits and Fatal Accidents
As Spokane personal injury lawyers, we are often asked about wrongful death lawsuits. After a fatal accident such as the one above, family members want justice for the deceased. A wrongful death attorney handles the litigation, allowing the family to focus on grieving and remembering their loved one.
Do I need a lawyer?
In cases involving property damage or minor scrapes and bruises, many people can handle their accident claims on their own. However, it is usually in your best interest to retain an attorney when crashes involve a serious injury or death. Many insurance companies will attempt to delay claims and pay out as little as possible, especially when there are major claims.
