Wrongful Death Consultations With A Counselor Of Law
For many, however, meeting a counselor of law to understand the legal process can be therapeutic. Losing someone abruptly for no fault of their own creates a powerful need for justice and fairness in many individuals. It isn’t about revenge, it’s about making amends. Your attorney can help you understand if there is a valid claim or not. Many people are hesitant to bring a claim. Perhaps, you are worried that others will see you as opportunistic, or perhaps you are overwhelmed by the prospect of prolonged litigation. These are valid concerns.
It is important to remember that you are in charge, and no attorney can bring a claim without your permission, and that you can end the case whenever you like. Before deciding whether to proceed, first allow an attorney to evaluate your claim. Perhaps the law prevents you from bringing a claim, or perhaps there are just not enough facts to prove up your claim. Now is the time to consult a professional and to make decisions with all the information. If you decide not to bring a claim, at least you will do so with all of the information.
A helpful analogy is that of someone who is searching for a job. Many people dismiss jobs in their field before even applying. Maybe the location isn’t just right, or duties are a little outside your expertise. There are many factors to every job. Unfortunately, many people don’t apply to jobs for small reasons, not big ones. A good rule of thumb is that you can always turn down a job when the offer is on the table. It is never a good idea to turn down a job before you’ve found out all the information.
In the same way, once you have spoken with an attorney about your claim, you are in a much better situation to decide whether or not to pursue that claim. Your attorney can explain the process of a wrongful death suit and help you understand what kind of personal and time commitment you may expect.
