The Role of Your Wrongful Death Lawyer
By: Mart Gil Abareta

When a life is cut short by someone else?s negligence, the law in this country says that the only remedy available is monetary compensation. And, after a wrongful death accident, you may be thinking that it is inappropriate to contact a wrongful death lawyer too soon after the death, because of what other people might think or say. But I must say that it is your choice to determine when you are ready to contact a wrongful death lawyer to back you up in your case.

A wrongful death lawyer plays an important role in every wrongful accident case. He helps determine if you have a viable claim and make sure that no important deadlines for filing are missed. He deals with complex legal issues involving tort law, probate law, contract law, and insurance law. He ensures that the claim is moving forward at a time when you may need to focus on helping yourself and your family work through the emotional loss. He takes steps to preserve evidence and testimony which might be lost if too much time has passed.

However, you must also know that wrongful deaths are not always caused by individual members of the civilian populace. During these instances, the role of wrongful death lawyers on the prosecutor side is to prove that negligence was the reason for the death currently under discussion. Their role is to represent a defendant and prove that the client was not negligent and didn?t cause the death of the victims involved.

The legal process can truly be intimidating and confusing. A major part of a wrongful death lawyer?s role is to demystify the process for you. He takes the time to explain things in plain English for you to be able to make informed decisions that are in your best interest for the long term. He commits himself in representing and protecting the rights of individuals and families. Most of the wrongful death lawyers around do not represent insurance companies, hospitals or large corporations.

After all, in both cases, the roles of your wrongful death lawyer are still the same. That is, to help you win the wrongful death case that you?ve been a part of. For the people in the prosecution, the focus of your concern must be on getting better ? protecting your right to compensation ? and getting the compensation and justice you deserve as a survivor of someone who was wrongfully killed. And for those people in the defense, your main concern is to prove that the accused has not been negligent in his actions.
