My Mother Died As A Result Of A Wrongful Death Incident. I Was Her Primary Caregiver And Financially Supported Her. In A Case Of Wrongful Death. Will I Receive The Proceeds Of The Settlement Or Will It Be Divided Among Siblings?

The Death Of My Family Member Has Been Hard Enough So I Really Don’t Want To Go Through The Difficulties Of A Lawsuit.

Years ago I lost a child so I get it. Money will not bring a lost loved one back. However, unfortunately, the law does not allow you to recover anything else. Insurance companies, who might have to pay for the death of your loved one are investigating this car wreck from day one. That’s why I suggest we sit down, go through what your options are and figure out if you want to just turn the chaos from the wreck to a legal professional.
