If you have a potential wrongful death claim, you may think to yourself, well, it’s a death claim; the insurance company’s just going to pay the money. why do I need a lawyer for my Nevada wrongful death case? The answer to that question is, oftentimes, the insurance company is not going to be willing to step up to the plate and take responsibility and pay the wrongful death claim.
Oftentimes, the damages can be great and they’re going to put it into litigation. Let me give you this example: I had a case where I represented the family of an elderly woman who fell, severely injured, and that set of injuries and the medical care led to her death. The insurance adjuster said to me repeatedly? “Why should I pay you any money in this case? Because she was going to die in a couple of years anyway.” I couldn’t believe it. This is how insurance companies think.
The unfortunate answer to the question, “Do I need an attorney?” is that the insurance companies are not going to just pay you the money. They are so callous and cavalier that they will do anything to avoid their responsibility. In most instances, yes, you’re going to have to have an attorney, and you need someone who has been through this numerous times, and who has the ability to deal with these insurance adjusters and companies. You want someone who is going to spend the time and figure out the full extent of your losses, and who’s going to put a game plan together to build your case and make that insurance company accept its responsibility for killing your loved one.
