After speaking with a lawyer to determine your eligibility to pursue compensation for the person’s death, you can ask the lawyer to conduct an investigation. The evidence is gathered during this stage, and the specific legal grounds for collecting financial damages are described. The investigation may include consultations with law enforcement, physicians, and other specialists whose expertise is pertinent to the case.
Formal court filings come next. These documents name one or more defendants, explain the evidence, and outline the extent of your damages. As pretrial activities commence, the defendant could propose a settlement. The advice of your attorney could help you decide whether to accept it or move forward with litigation. Should your case go to trial, then your attorney will strive to convince the jury of the defendant’s responsibility.
