The Importance of Working with a Wrongful Death Attorney After a Fatal Accident
After the loss of a loved one, one family has had enough. Surviving family members do not have to deal with the legal process themselves. Working with the best wrongful death attorneys in Hayward can give survivors time to recover from their loss and rebuild their lives. Lawyers can help a family in many ways, such as investigating events, gathering evidence, gathering evidence of survivors’ losses, communicating with insurance companies, and negotiating favorable settlements on their behalf. If all attempts by the parties to reach a settlement agreement fail, your attorney will take the case to court for a judge or jury to determine the appropriate verdict.

Is there a time limit for California wrongful death cases?
California has a time limit called the statute of limitations for wrongful death. That set a deadline for the family’s right to file a lawsuit in civil court. Failure to meet the deadline may result in the loss of the right to seek damages for the loss of the next of kin. This is one of the many reasons why it is critical to hire legal counsel after a fatal accident. The statute of limitations is usually two years from the date of loss, but there are some exceptions. For more information, contact an accident attorney.
