Three Essential Traits for a Wrongful Death Lawyer

Choosing an attorney after the wrongful death of a loved one is not an easy decision to make. It certainly doesn’t help that the market is saturated with personal injury lawyers who promise the world but are actually claims mills that simply “settle out” cases, against the interests of the client, to bring early cash in the door. You have to wade through a lot of chaff to find the wheat, so to speak, but it is well worth it to find the advocate who is right for you. After all, your case’s success hinges on the quality of your representation.

Consider the following factors when selecting a wrongful death lawyer:

  • Resources: You want a wrongful death attorney who has not only the finances to cover the costs associated with constructing your case, but also the resources and connections needed to reinforce your claim and make it airtight: access to a network of leading industry professionals including accident reconstruction specialists, investigators, and economic loss experts; physicians and medical providers who are willing to treat you with no upfront costs; and cutting-edge case management and investigation technology.
  • Experience: An attorney can have all the resources in the world, but if he or she doesn’t have the experience to back it up, it doesn’t mean a whole lot. It’s vital to select an attorney with substantial past experience litigating, specifically, wrongful death cases.
  • Personalized Services: A jack-of-all-trades attorney who employs cookie cutter approaches will only net you a mediocre case outcome. A dedicated and diligent attorney who provides custom-tailored legal representation will get you the full and fair settlement you deserve.
  • Results: Ultimately, it’s the numbers that matter. A wrongful death attorney with a history of securing exceptional results for clients against insurance companies, corporations, and other tough adversaries is the type of attorney you should want handling your wrongful death case.
