How to Negotiate a Wrongful Death Claim

If you wish to negotiate a wrongful death claim, you may find it beneficial to conduct a proper investigation of the circumstance that led to the death in question, so that you have a fully formed claim with supporting evidence. This may include witness testimony, documentation of the premises at which the death occurred, any medical treatment of the decedent after the incident if they did not die immediately, and other similar records.

Conducting a thorough investigation while grieving can be extremely difficult. Therefore, it is important to find a wrongful death attorney who can help you seek the necessary information to form and justify your claim.

Once you have gathered the necessary evidence, you must determine a value of your wrongful death claim. This may primarily be based on economic damages, including any medical bills incurred between the accident and time of death, as well as lost future income.

Additionally, it is highly advisable to calculate non-economic damages inflicted on both the decedent before death and their surviving loved ones. These can include pain and suffering, loss of consortium, difficulty sleeping or partaking in hobbies, and more.

After determining the value of your wrongful death claim, you must then place your claim with Amica and stand firm on your desired compensation. It is in the best interest of Amica to eliminate any costs included in your claim that they deem unnecessary.

If Amica offers you less than you are willing to accept, you may decide to file a lawsuit instead of taking the lower amount. You should take into consideration that if you decide to take your case to trial, it may take longer for you to receive compensation than if you accepted a settlement.
