The firm routinely handles wrongful death cases, those in which someone is negligent and causes the death of another. Often, a case will be both a wrongful death case, and a product liability case, or medical negligence case.
In the aftermath of a death, family members may disagree about whether to contact a lawyer. This is especially the case when there is some sense that a negligent person or product may have caused the death. Grieving is an intensely personal process, and it affects each of us differently.
If there are questions or suspicions about why a death occurred, we have found the best way to address family concerns is through a preliminary question and answer meeting. Our firm does not send an investigator to your home to sign a contract. There is never any pressure to file a lawsuit. We believe clients are best served by first understanding how the legal system works, as well as what it can (and cannot) accomplish. A preliminary meeting of this type provides all concerned with equal access to legal counsel and permits the family to understand, evaluate and choose a course of action that comports with their expectations as a group. It also allows our firm to provide you choices in addition to immediately filing a lawsuit.
If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance, call The Law Offices of William Kenneth C. Dippel, P.C. at 972-866-9900 or contact us online. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
