One of the most emotional and tragic claims that exist are negligent death cases. This is what a claim is called when a person is killed due to the negligence of another person. Typically, it is a situation where someone is killed in an automobile accident and the crash is not their fault. The emotional roller coaster that happens after an event like this is almost as bad as the death itself. These are very complicated cases because the person that has passed away has what is called an “estate”. The estate then has a negligent death claim against the responsible party. A person designated to represent the estate is in charge of this claim, and without a good knowledge of insurance law, could fail to pursue this claim. Our office handles claims such as these, and can guide the estate through the court and claims process to ensure that the estate fully takes care of the legal matters that happen. If your family or friends have lost someone due to a situation like this, please give us a call for a free consultation to ensure all legal matters have been resolved for that estate. Our number is (406) 721-3354.
