Morgan & Morgan

  • Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Manhattan?

    In most cases, immediate family members, such as spouses, children, or parents, are usually allowed to file a lawsuit death claim or lawsuit. That said, there may be instances where other parties close to this circle might be allowed to join the claim, which is why it is always advisable to have your case reviewed by a wrongful death expert from our team.

  • What Am I Entitled to if I Have a Valid Case?

    You could recover compensation for various damages you or other family members incurred. These include but are not limited to medical costs, funeral and burial expenses, loss of monetary support the decedent would have offered had they been alive, and the emotional distress the survivors have suffered as a result.

  • What Should I Look for in a Wrongful Death Lawyer?

    Because wrongful death cases are very complex, you need a lawyer with experience dealing with insurance companies, especially when seeking compensation for wrongful death. The attorney should also have access to powerful legal resources to strengthen your case, a positive reputation in this field, and quantifiable results.

  • Can I Negotiate a Settlement Without a Lawyer?

    It’s never advisable to negotiate a settlement without a lawyer. That’s because the other party won’t have your best interests at heart, even if they seem to care. Chances are, they’ll want you to settle for less than you deserve, something a lawyer can help you avoid by ensuring you understand your rights and the true value of your claim.

  • Can I Hire a General Personal Injury Lawyer To Represent Me?

    While you can hire a general personal injury lawyer to represent you in a wrongful death case, you should consider choosing an attorney with specific experience in handling wrongful death claims due to the unique legal aspects involved.
