The Advocates Accident Claim Process
Step 1: Investigate the Accident
The first steps The Advocates will take is to investigate your accident. Our attorneys do this by obtaining a police report about your accident, examining any photos or videos of the crash scene, and speaking to any relevant witnesses. Once we have established liability, we will begin to build your injury claim.
Step 2: Build Your Claim
Building your car accident injury claim is one of the most time-consuming steps in the entire process. Our staff must wait until you are finished treatment for your injuries before we can compile a comprehensive medical record of the injuries you have suffered from your accident. This is a timely process so be patient.
Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement
Once you are finished treating your injuries and your medical records have been gathered, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance. Afterwards, negotiations with your attorney will begin. If we are unable to negotiate a fair offer, then you will have the option to file a lawsuit.
Step 4: Litigate If Necessary
Time wise, litigation is the longest step in the claim process, possibly extending the life of your claim one or, even, two years. If you do decide to file a lawsuit, be prepared to potentially appear before a judge and jury.
Wrongful Death Law in Wyoming
A wrongful death is typically defined as any death that is proven to have been caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or party. The beneficiaries of the deceased in such cases are entitled to financial compensation from the person found liable for the deceased’s loss of life. Wrongful deaths can happen for a number of reasons and often involve multiple people or parties such as doctors, hospitals, private businesses, and even individuals who have been found to be responsible by a court of law.
Below are the common reported types of wrongful deaths:
- Work-related accidents due to unsafe conditions
- Defective auto part failures
- Medical malpractice such as misdiagnosis or malfeasance
- Plane crashes
- Defective medications
- Alcohol-related automobile crashes
Wrongful Death Settlement
Following the death of someone close to you, multiple factors can come into play. These factors vary in the degree and type of financial compensation you and the members of your family might eventually be entitled to in the form of a wrongful death settlement. A few of such factors are listed below:
- The number of legal dependents involved
- The amount of the deceased’s savings
- The total of their savings
- How negligent the defendant is found for the wrongful death
Wrongful death claims can be tricky to prove in a court of law. It’s best to be as prepared as possible by having qualified and professional legal representation before filing.
