5 Advantages of Hiring an Experienced Wrongful Death Attorney

Following the loss of a beloved family member, pursuing justice may seem impossible as you contend with the weight of the loss. An experienced attorney may be able to take this burden off your shoulders and hold the negligent party fully accountable for your loved one’s passing. A few benefits an experienced wrongful death attorney may provide include: 

We Understand the Ins and Outs of the Law

Filing a wrongful death claim is a long, stressful, and confusing process if you are unfamiliar with the law. While this is hopefully your first and only wrongful death claim, Knutson + Casey attorneys have extensive experience handling these cases and will advise you on the best path forward. Your attorney will know how to navigate the legal process efficiently while aggressively protecting your rights and interests. 

We Will Fight for the Total Value of Your Claim

Shortly after your loved one’s passing, you may be contacted by the insurance company and offered a settlement. Although many individuals may assume that the insurance company has their best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Insurance companies often offer you the lowest amount possible for your damages. A highly qualified attorney will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and may be able to maximize the total value of your claim. 

We Will Handle Your Case So You Can Focus On Healing

As you recover from losing your family member, filing paperwork, making phone calls, and handling court proceedings is likely the last thing from your mind. When you hire an attorney, they will focus on protecting your rights and interests as you focus on healing and caring for your family during this challenging time. 

We Will Take Your Case to Trial if Necessary

While many wrongful death claims are settled before trial through negotiation, a skilled attorney will take your case to trial to protect your rights and the total value of your claim if necessary. At Knutson + Casey, our attorneys have 30 years of experience helping families in Minnesota achieve justice for their loved ones. 

Hiring an Attorney Can Save You Time and Money

Many individuals forgo hiring an attorney because they fear their services will be too expensive. However, hiring a lawyer may save you money in the long run since they will fight for the maximum compensation available on your behalf. At Knutson + Casey no money will be owed up front for legal services, we only get paid if we recover something on your case.
