Wrongful Death Law
If a reckless, careless, or heartless person has taken the life of someone you love, you are likely the only person that can hold the wrongdoer accountable.
Reckless drivers, greedy corporations, and careless government agencies will likely shirk their moral and financial obligations to you and your loved ones. The law does not allow them to get away with it unless you do nothing. You must pursue a wrongful death claim and/or lawsuit to make any evasive wrongdoer fully responsible.
You will find out that wrongful death claims are almost always affected by liability insurance policies. Ninety-five percent of the time, or better, you will be fighting not only a reckless and heartless wrongdoer, but also his or her billion dollar insurance company. It is true, the insurance company lawyers and claims adjusters have one simple goal: "To pay you as little as possible to go away".
When you pursue a claim or a lawsuit, you will need the assistance of a skilled wrongful death lawyer. Someone with skills, education, and experience to pursue wrongdoers and their billion dollar insurance companies. Rich Harris is the wrongful death lawyer who can help you.
Mr. Harris has successfully concluded more than 200 wrongful death cases both for and against insurance companies.
Knowing liability insurance policies and knowing how liability insurers handle wrongful death claims will likely have a significant impact on your wrongful death case.
As an example, vehicle liability insurance varies significantly based on whether the vehicle is private passenger auto, motorcycle, self-insured rental car, commercial business auto, garage keepers liability and tractor/trailer operator coverage.
As another example, each business owner or property owner may have liability coverages that affect the wrongful death heirs. These policies include: commercial general liability coverage, landlords package policies, homeowners personal liability coverage, personal catastrophe coverage, and umbrella/excess policies.
Each policy and circumstance has unique languages and coverages that will determine whether or not the person or company is covered for the loss of your loved one. Without a valid insurance claim you may never be fully compensated for the loss of your loved one. The average lawyer has no experience with these various types of coverage, their underwriting processes, and claims processes.
