If you have recently lost a loved one due to a horrific accident, you are likely feeling overwhelmed by all the emotional, mental, financial, practical and legal consequences of that tragedy. Please understand that feeling overwhelmed in the wake of such loss is completely normal. And also please know that you do not have to deal with the legal side of your loss alone. When an individual dies as a result of a preventable experience (like a car accident, defective product injury, unsafe working conditions, etc.) the loved ones left behind may be empowered to file a wrongful death suit in civil court. This essentially means that the close loved ones of a deceased person may seek legal justice and financial compensation on behalf of the person who lost his or her life due to another’s negligence or recklessness. This is a complex process, but experienced explosion injury and wrongful death accident lawyers understand how to navigate it successfully, whenever possible.
Explosion Wrongful Death Claims – The Basics
Filing a wrongful death claim is similar to filing a “standard” personal injury claim. The estate of the deceased or eligible loved ones file a petition with the court, with the assistance of experienced explosion injury and wrongful death accident lawyers. Those parties named as defendants are then served with notice of the suit. Both sides of the legal dispute gather evidence, conduct interviews and otherwise prepare their cases. Most of the time, one side will offer the other an opportunity to settle. If the settlement terms are unacceptable, that settlement offer is rejected. Settlement offers can be made at virtually any time and virtually as many times as either side cares to present an offer. If the case is not dropped and no settlement terms can be agreed upon, the case will proceed to trial.
