If you think you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim after the death of a loved one, it is important to consult with a wrongful death attorney immediately. As soon as the death occurs, the clock is already ticking towards the statute of limitations.
Also, waiting can hurt your case. Defense lawyers may argue that a plaintiff waited to file a wrongful death claim because their case is not a strong one. In other situations, important evidence may go missing or witnesses may be less reliable after some time has passed. Filing promptly, and contacting an attorney immediately if you think you have a claim, can help you protect your rights in a lawsuit.
Since waiting can mean you weaken your case, or lose your right to pursue a claim entirely, it is important to consult with a wrongful death claim attorney immediately if you suspect that your loved one’s death may be grounds for a lawsuit. It can be difficult to think about legal matters if you are grieving, but contacting the caring attorneys at KBG Injury Law can help you protect the rights of yourself and your family members.
