5 Common Pitfalls When Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

If you lose a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or malicious actions, you have the right to take legal action in the form of a wrongful death claim. During this very difficult time, you should hire a wrongful death lawyer to help guide you through the process. Without an experienced legal professional, you leave yourself vulnerable to the many pitfalls that often prove to be the difference between a successful claim and walking away empty handed.

Our team at Domina Law Group has handled hundreds of wrongful death cases and we want you to understand the pitfalls and how to avoid them.

1. Representing Yourself

Self-representation is one of the common mistakes that people make when dealing with a wrongful death case. When families try to navigate the legal process alone, they often leave themselves vulnerable to the defense. The complexities involved can make it difficult to find a favorable resolution without the help of a lawyer.

2. Missing Timely Deadlines

It is understandable that you are not thinking about legal matters after the passing of a loved one. You’re grieving and that is fine. However, in order to pursue legal justice and seek compensation for the damages, you have a strict statute of limitations by which to abide. If this time comes and goes without legal action, you won’t be able to file a claim in the future.

3. Hiring the Wrong Attorney

Many attorneys offer quick results and low fees. While some cases may be more cut and dry and easier to handle, no matter the complexities, you want to make sure you have the right attorney on your side. You need someone you can trust to put your best interests first and seek the most favorable outcome possible.

4. Accepting an Unjust Settlement

When any kind of legal matter presents itself, the defense is hopeful that the plaintiff will take a quick settlement. In wrongful death claims, this amount is usually insufficient in covering the related damages. Without proper legal counsel, you may be inclined to accept the settlement. This is a mistake because you may be able to recover more compensation with a comprehensive knowledge of wrongful death laws, something offered primarily by personal injury attorneys.

5. Filing a Claim Against the Wrong Party

Depending on the cause of the accident, there may be many different parties responsible for the wrongful death. Without a lawyer on your side, you may file a claim incorrectly and seek compensation from a party that was not at fault in the matter.

At Domina Law Group, our Nebraska wrongful death attorneys know how to properly navigate the legal system and help families seek the compensation they need. We have the skill and knowledge necessary to help you move forward with confidence. Call us today to discuss your case.
