Questions Your Attorney May Ask During the Free Consultation

Your wrongful death claim will begin with an initial consultation. During this meeting, you will discuss the circumstances of the case with a fatal accident lawyer so together you can determine the best way to pursue the compensation your family deserves.

You can ensure the claim gets off to a strong start by being prepared to answer the following questions:

  • Why do you have reason to believe your loved one’s death could have been prevented?

  • Do you have any evidence of negligence, wrongdoing, malicious intent, or fraud?

  • Did police respond to the incident, and if so, did they draft an official report?

  • Were there any eyewitnesses?

  • Did the victim die immediately, or was he or she sick or injured for some time following the accident?

  • Did the deceased contribute to the household financially?

  • Did you rely on the deceased for services like childcare, meal preparation, or transportation?

  • Have you spoken to any insurance adjusters, and if so, have you given any recorded statements?

  • Is there a chance that the opposing party could argue your loved one was at least partially liable for the wrongful death?

  • Is anyone in your family active on social media, and if so, have they posted anything about the case since the accident?

  • Have you been tracking all costs incurred since the death such as hospital bills and funeral expenses?
