Can Any Attorney Handle a Wrongful Death Claim?

Personal Injury & Car Accident Attorneys Serving Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Naples & Nearby Southwest Florida

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Not all lawyers are trained the same. Everybody graduates from law school and then focuses generally on a particular area of expertise. Wrongful death claims are brought by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate. And the claim is brought on behalf of the survivors. And different types of survivors have different types of claims. Sometimes there’s a criminal element that parallels a civil wrongful death claim. So the answer to the question is no. Not any attorney, in my opinion, can handle a wrongful death claim. You don’t want somebody who’s never handled a wrongful death claim to handle one that’s important to you or your family.
