If you’ve lost a loved one in a wrongful death accident, you’re likely wondering how you will recover. You’re planning for the future while trying to cope with a tragedy. Wrongful death cases are challenging, complex, and stressful. When you’re mourning, the last thing you want to do is negotiate with insurance companies trying to make a profit. If you want to focus on healing, avoid legal matters, and maximize your outcome, consider hiring an Indiana wrongful death lawyer.
How Can a Wrongful Death Lawyer Help Me?
An experienced, Indiana wrongful death lawyer can handle your case while you and your family heal. The right attorney will:
- Thoroughly investigate the accident to prove fault, hiring experts as needed.
- Prevent insurance companies from contacting you, and negotiate on your behalf.
- If necessary, file suit, depose witnesses, and prepare your case.
- If necessary, bring your case to trial and pursue an appeal.
- Get you and your family the maximum possible recovery.
Hiring an experienced lawyer maximizes your chance at recovery and reduces the stress of managing a wrongful death case yourself.
What Happens if I Don’t Hire a Wrongful Death Lawyer?
If you don’t hire a lawyer, you alone will bear the burden of proving medical malpractice. Your opponents (the medical provider and the insurance company) will certainly have a team of lawyers protecting their interests. Without your own lawyer, your wrongful death case won’t be a fair fight.
To make a profit, insurance companies try to pay out the least amount of money possible, even for those who need it. They are experienced in navigating the legal landscape, and they will do what it takes to protect their own interests. You should do the same.
