Wrongful Death

What Should the Family Do First?

While it might be difficult to think when dealing with the wrongful death of a loved one, it is important to follow some important first steps to ensure you can bring a successful wrongful death case against the liable party. The first step in a wrongful death case is the opening of an estate. If there is a potential claim, an estate must be opened so that somebody can be appointed by the probate court to investigate the potential claim.

It is important to remember that an estate does not only involve money, property, and possessions. These assets do make up an estate, but any potential legal claims are included as an asset to an estate. If there is a wrongful death claim, the next steps include the preservation of evidence, finding a good attorney, and commencing the lawsuit.

I need to tell you how great it was for Attorney Jami Oliver to handle my case. First she listened to what the situation that I was facing.... She educated me on what the chances were as far as possible success as well as pitfalls that could disrupt that success. She was very honest as far as letting us know the chances of winning versus losing. It was a difficult case, and she still educated us as to what our options were and how the process worked. She instructed us on what to say as well as what not to say. Sometimes you need to talk and other times not talk. She believed in us and fought for us. You can't go wrong to hire her the staff that compliments her strengths. John Zimmerread more
