With Stakes This High, You Need an Experienced Attorney to Defend Your Family’s Rights
Almost any lawsuit is more effective when an experienced attorney argues it, but a claim as serious as wrongful death can especially benefit from a lawyer’s assistance. If you experience any of the following after the accident, it is probably a harbinger that successfully winning legal damages through either an insurance claim or a civil lawsuit, maybe much more complicated than you expect.
If the other driver doesn’t want to give you his insurance information, contact information, or file a police report, he or she is probably uninsured. Or the other driver might claim to be insured, but you’ve never heard of his insurance company. The negligent driver’s insurance company might quickly offer you a settlement that seems unreasonably low or unfair, or its adjuster keeps calling you to ask you questions, wants to record all of your answers, then tells you nothing.
Among the insurance company’s most effective tactics are bombarding you with questions and trying to badger you into signing a settlement agreement. At the same time, you and your bereaved family members are still trying to recover from the shock over your loved one’s death (and before you’ve had the opportunity to consult with an attorney). You must never sign anything an insurance company puts in front of your without talking with an attorney first. You’re just asking for trouble if you do.
If you have a relative or friend who is a lawyer, even though he or she might be looking out for your best interests and is inspired to fight hard for you, it might be a good idea to reconsider retaining someone else. Your friend might have a difficult time emotionally disassociating himself or herself from your emotional case. A pragmatic attorney best serves his clients when he focuses solely on the facts of a case and is calm under fire. Too much empathy is not always a good thing if it clouds one’s thinking.
What happens if that friend or relative attorney doesn’t win the case, or accepts a less-than-fair settlement because he knows how badly you need the money now, and leaves even more on the table than an experienced attorney would not? How will you feel about your friend or relative then?
