Family Member Killed in Clay Township Accident
We understand how difficult of a time this is for the family who is dealing with the death of their loved one. It is an unimaginable loss and no one should ever have to experience the pain and suffering that results from a fatal vehicle accident.
While this is an extremely emotional time for the family, one thing that can help is hiring a wrongful death lawyer to represent you. Hiring a lawyer is often the last thing on someone’s mind after they find out they’ve lost someone in an accident, but it should be one of the things to consider as a lawyer can take a very large burden off of the family’s shoulders.
After losing someone in an accident, you will begin to get phone calls form the insurance company. They will offer you a settlement just days after the accident and while this may seem to be attractive at first, the reason behind it is that they are trying to keep from paying you the entire amount that you and your family deserves.
If you hire a lawyer to represent you after a fatal accident such as the one that occurred today in Genoa, they will then take over all communications with the insurance company. This will leave you and your family to be able to focus on the more important things at this time, not avoiding phone calls from an insurance adjuster.
