Who is Going to Represent the Person Who Passed Away?

One of the first things that need to be established is, “Who is going to represent the person who passed away?”

Whether it be the victim’s:

  • Mother
  • Father
  • Grandparent
  • Sibiling

Who is the next person to be in line to represent that person because a Wrongful Death is a very serious situation. Not only are emotions high, but a lot of money could be at stake. If the family begins to compete with each other, it will take the help of a personal injury attorney to clear the path for the legal procedures to determine who in fact has the rights.

Even after that is determined, there are still a handful of procedures that must take place before the case could move forward and before the family could recover for what took place.If you, a friend of family member has been involved in a tragic accident that has resulted in death, please give us a call today and speak with one of our Wrongful death attorneys.
