Has someone you love recently passed away before their time? Do you suspect that the death was caused by negligence? Wrongful death lawsuits are filed when the beneficiaries of the deceased wish to file a claim against the person or persons they believe to be responsible for the untimely death of their loved one. Often the claim asks for recovery of lost wages from a work life cut short, along with a considerable damage award to compensate the family for loss and suffering, lost income, medical bills, and other costs associated with a death. Typically wrongful death lawsuits are about large monetary settlements to be won through proving that the accused party is guilty of negligence in the death of their loved one.
In most states, wrongful death claims must be filed within a specific period after the death has occurred. With a limited time frame, it is both wise and practical to hire a private investigator to collect the evidence of negligence that you will need to prove your case, and be awarded the money you both need and deserve. Our investigator will be able to tell you whether your case is worth pursuing before you spend thousands of dollars on attorneys and filing fees. If, after preliminary investigation, our investigator informs you that do have case worth pursuing, the next phase of the investigation will focus on collecting strong evidence to prove that the defendant caused the death.
