How to Resolve Your Wrongful Death Claim
In many cases, wrongful death claims find resolutions without the need of full court action. The plaintiff and the defendant- or more likely the insurer of the defendant who caused the death- will negotiate an out-of-court settlement. Upon acceptance of a settlement, the case will be resolved permanently. It is important, for this reason, to speak with an attorney before you sign any settlement paperwork. If no settlement is reached, then the case will be decided by a jury and the plaintiff will need to prove how the death occured and the extent of losses and damages. Here at the Aranda Law Firm, we can provide invaluable assistance with settlement negotiation and wrongful death litigation. Contact us today.
