Dealing with Fatal Accident Lawyers

By April 7, 2012 March 31st, 2018 Fatality Accidents Tips

A fatal accident is devastating to the victim’s loved ones. If a loved one was involved in a fatal accident, contact an Orange County accident lawyer as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitations on the time to file a wrongful death case against the person at fault.

The fatal accident lawyer meets with the loved ones and explains the process of opening and litigating a wrongful death case. If the defendant was committing a heinous act, which caused the accident and subsequently the wrongful death, the plaintiff (loved one) is entitled to punitive damages.

The fatal accident lawyer will request medical records and police reports, so always save all documentation relating to the accident. If you have documentation that you are not sure would be helpful, bring those documents, too, and the fatal accident lawyer will let you know if that particular documentation is needed for your case.
