Lansing Wrongful Death Lawyer | Cases We Handle

As personal injury attorneys, Michigan wrongful death claims are some of the most difficult cases we litigate on behalf of our clients. In nature, wrongful death is a death that results from the negligence of someone else and their actions. For our clients, we know how difficult this can be while you’re still grieving the loss of a loved one. While a claim cannot replace the loss, the mission of a Lansing wrongful death lawyer is to present a successful case, allowing surviving parties of the deceased to receive damages from the person/persons whose actions contributed to their loved ones passing.

Why Hire A Lansing Wrongful Death Attorney?

Under Michigan’s Wrongful Death Law, there is a process that surviving parties of the deceased must follow to successfully pursue a claim. In addition, there are some things that must be considered, to determine if there is merit for a wrongful death claim.

  1. Statute of Limitations – In Michigan, the statute of limitations or time after the death in which you have to file a claim is confusing. In many cases, that limit would be three years from the time the person died that you would have to file a claim, but in some cases, that time limit can be extended. Your attorney can help you figure out your options. It’s suggested that speaking with an attorney sooner rather than later is always the best course of action.
  2. Personal Representative – If there is merit for a wrongful death claim, then your attorney will help you or another family member become the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. This must happen before a wrongful death claim can be prosecuted. An experienced wrongful death attorney will get this process started right away and can help you take the next steps once appointed.
