The importance of choosing your attorney wisely in wrongful death cases
A plaintiff has one chance to bring a civil action for wrongful death. Once the court passes judgment on the merits of your case, you must live with the verdict. Your choice of attorney can be the single most important factor in determining the outcome of your case. It is not enough that your attorney has “practiced” personal injury law; the attorney you choose must have taken high-stakes cases to trial and won substantial recovery, either through a verdict or settlement. Because wrongful death cases often result in high damage awards, insurance companies defend them aggressively. Your attorney must have the skill, experience and resources to match large corporations with deep legal departments. Pulverman & Pulverman, LLP has a track record of success.
