The length of time it takes for an attorney to settle a wrongful death claim depends on many factors. Two important factors include whether the at-fault insurance company is accepting liability (fault) for what happened and the amount of insurance available to compensate the victim’s family.
When the at-fault insurance company refuses to accept fault for the accident, a lawsuit must be filed to dig into the facts and hold them accountable. Unfortunately, quick settlements in wrongful death cases are often an indication that a very small amount of insurance is available to cover the loss.
Wrongful death cases can be very complicated and may include multiple defendants and complex theories of liability. It is important to have an experienced wrongful death attorney on your side. At Grady J. Flattmann, Attorneys at Law, we pride ourselves on our compassionate approach to handling complicated wrongful death cases for grieving families.
