Why Do You Need a Lawyer to File a Wrongful Death Claim?
March 13th, 2018|
In Alabama, a wrongful death is defined as a death caused by another person’s or party’s wrongful act, omission, or negligence. And while anyone who manages the deceased’s estate can attempt to file a wrongful death claim to get compensation for lost income, lost spousal support, and lost companionship, it can be difficult to prove negligence occurred and contributed to the death without an experienced Alabama wrongful death lawyer.
If you lost a loved one due to another person’s or party’s mistake, you may be eligible to receive damages for your loss—but going it alone can be an uphill battle, even if you are the personal representative of his or her estate. Wrongful death claims require extensive proof and a deep understanding of the law—two things that Norris Injury Lawyers can provide.
