What Does a Wrongful Death Lawsuit Look Like?

What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In a wrongful death case, the plaintiff asserts a claim against the person responsible for the death. This person might have insurance coverage that covers the act that caused death. An insurance adjuster will review your claim if they have insurance.

An insurance company may either accept liability and pay a settlement or deny it. You can use the court if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, or denies liability.

The discovery process allows the parties to exchange information after a lawsuit has been filed. The court might hold hearings to discuss scheduling and motions. The parties can continue to try to resolve the matter through mediation or settlement offers while the case is pending. If the case cannot be resolved, a trial will take place to determine who is responsible and what damages are to be awarded.
