Wrongful Death - Lomax Law Firm

The death of a loved one is one of the most traumatic events of a person’s life, but it is made doubly hard if the death in question was the result of carelessness or negligence on the part of someone else. In cases such as these, legal recourse may be required in order to obtain a judgment or settlement that makes some attempt to acknowledge the incredible loss that you have experienced.

Wrongful Death in Ontario—How the Right Lawyer Can Help

Some people refuse to hire an accident lawyer to deal with wrongful death lawsuits. They may try to represent themselves in court, believing that they have an open-and-shut case and that any judge is going to see things their way. The right accident lawyer can be a vital ally, however. Experienced lawyers are familiar with the complexities of the legal system, and they know how to craft and present a solid case on your behalf. Among the advantages of hiring an accident lawyer for your wrongful death suit:

Unlike the family, the lawyer is not in mourning and may have a clearer head when it comes to legal matters relating to a tragic death.

With your lawyer focused on the legal matters of this wrongful death, you and your family will be allowed the time to grieve over your loss.

An accident lawyer will be able to handle the legwork of tracking down responsible parties, witnesses, documents, and records relating to the death.

A qualified lawyer will be familiar with courtroom procedure and etiquette and can navigate the sometimes complex waters of court filings, hearings, examinations, and trials.

They also know how to draw from other resources when necessary, so that your case has the benefit of an entire team of legal, medical, and other relevant experts.

Choosing the Right Lawyer

Wrongful death lawyers ideally should not make any money unless they recover money for you. This allows you to afford the best representation that is out there, since they receive a percentage of whatever settlement or judgment is reached in relation to your loved one’s death. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask some questions, though.

Ask how much time will be devoted to your case. If a lawyer is spread thin due to a heavy caseload, your case is going to suffer. Concentrate on experience over price. Make sure you hire someone who is experienced in the area of wrongful death law.
