In many instances, the insurance company, for whatever reason, may deny the claim and decide to fight it. A wrongful death case is typically very complex. Very often, it’s going to require the filing of a lawsuit. If you hire a personal injury attorney, they should pay those costs up front. In other words, they don’t have to come out-of-pocked. However, because it’s involved in litigation, those costs can be very expensive. If you’re looking for an attorney to handle a wrongful death case, you better know that your attorney is committed to that case. When I say committed, that means that they’re willing to spend the time and money that is required to build that case, and if the case can’t be settled, be able to take it to trial.

In many instances, with very significant injuries and significant losses due to the wrongful death, the cost to take a case like that to trial could cost a couple hundred thousand dollars. This is not a cheap endeavor, and you don’t want an attorney who doesn’t have the ability to go the distance, or who doesn’t have the commitment to the case to do it justice. If the insurance company knows that your lawyer is going to fold and cave in at the end, they’re just going to pay in pennies on the dollar.

You need somebody who’s committed and who will be ready, willing and able to take that case to trial if necessary. That’s the only way that you are going to get a full and fair settlement of the case.
