Home » What Does a Wrongful Death Lawyer Do?

Wrongful death cases are often complicated, as a lawsuit filed by a family member of a deceased loved one must be properly prepared and properly served. The wrongful death attorney’s primary function is to determine how much compensation a family member may be entitled to. The lawyer will file a lawsuit if a lawsuit cannot be resolved out of court. However, if a settlement is not possible, a Phoenix wrongful death attorney can file a lawsuit and try to reach a fair settlement.

Wrongful death lawsuits are usually brought after a criminal trial. Although the evidence is similar, the standard of proof is lower. In the case of O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted of murder in a criminal trial, the civil jury found him liable for the wrongful deaths of two victims. If a settlement is not possible, a wrongful death lawyer can file a lawsuit and appoint a personal representative for the family.

Wrongful death cases are extremely complex. Unless you have significant legal experience, you can end up wasting a significant amount of time navigating the legal system. There are numerous different types of documents that must be filed on strict deadlines. A wrongful death lawyer knows what to do and can make the process run smoothly. A wrongful death attorney can help ease the financial burden of a family.
