Sarasota Wrongful Death Lawyers and the Coronavirus Crisis
We recently sat down with James Horne. Mr. Horone happens to be one of our Sarasota wrongful death lawyers and the Coronavirus crisis has raised lots of questions. We’ve been inundated with client calls about accident victims rights to file a suit during the COVID-19 “stay at home orders“. So, we decided to provide some information on our website. Now, as always, please remember that the information on our website is NOT legal advice. These are just our opinions. If you do need legal advice from a Sarasota injury attorney call us at (941) 260-0453.
Our injury lawyers have over 100 years of combined legal experience. We’ve also won more than $100 million dollars for our clients. Throughout our tenured careers, we’ve handled all types of accident claims, from car crashes to construction accidents. However, the most difficult and somber type of case we handle are wrongful death claims. Mr. James Horne was kind enough to sit down with us, to help explain why these cases may present hurdles that other accident claims do not.
Complications with Wrongful Death Lawsuits
There are lots of potential complications with wrongful death lawsuits. As such, we always advise family members to speak to an attorney right away, if they believe they may want to pursue a wrongful death claim. Our Sarasota and Manatee County personal injury lawyers do handle these types of lawsuits. However, wrongful death claims are difficult. First and foremost, family members of the victim need time to grieve. The emotional and physical pain of losing a loved one is tough enough. Trying to worry about financial aspects can only add to the mental stress you are going through.
However, there is another major reason why we believe wrongful death lawsuits are complicated. See, insurance companies hate losing money. That’s why they over-analyze injury claims, and even employ adjusters who try to get them out of paying a claim. Insurance companies also hire their own injury attorneys, who will (if necessary) go to court to try and NOT payout on an injury. Wrongful death claims tend to be VERY expensive, so insurance firms may weigh the opportunity cost and simply decide to fight it.
