Qualities to Look for in a Wrongful Death Lawyer

Qualities to Look for in a Wrongful Death LawyerScope of Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful death claims due to personal injury are sufficiently straightforward. When an individual, such as a parent, is deceased and there is reason a second or third party may be liable, it is necessary for the family of the deceased to seek closure. The scope of wrongful death claims includes medical malpractice, which has commonly occurred due to prescription of opioids to treat pain. It also includes workplace deaths. Some notable cases have occurred to workers who have fallen into machines. The employer may not have followed safety protocols, such as failing to provide machine guarding. Or it was a new hire who was not properly onboarded on safety procedures. In another example, it may be from a worker who spent years working in and around asbestos, developing mesothelioma, a deadly cancer, as a result. Whatever the case, the family of the deceased will want to hire a wrongful death lawyer.

Qualities to Look for in a Wrongful Death Lawyer Include:

  1. A Clear Passion in Bringing Justice for Victims of Wrongful Deaths

    Attorneys with this quality are exhibiting more than their penchant for getting paid to perform the work. They WANT to represent you and your family, because they deeply care about the circumstances at hand.

  2. A Demonstrated Concern for Dependents

    A family with children is often devastated at the loss of a parent. It is difficult to ascertain the hardships that follow for these families. Your concern as a parent is to hire an attorney who knows how important it is for the children to grow up and get an education, with the financial resources available to do so.

  3. The Care and Precision to be Able to Lead You Through a Challenging Time

    Hiring an attorney for a wrongful death claim is consequential. The right attorney is hardened by the work they do, yet sensitive enough to lead you through this period.
