A fender bender is not the same as a wrongful death case. As you already know the financial damages and the non-economic costs of a small car accident are significantly different than the bills and emotional grief that you have been dealing with since your loved one was killed in a Kentucky truck accident.
While the insurance company may have been quick to offer you an acceptable settlement in a small property damage car accident case, you should expect that the insurance company is going to fight back hard and try to get you to accept as low a settlement as possible for your loved one’s death. Once you settle, it is extremely unlikely that you will ever be able to recover any additional financial damages in the future.
Accordingly, it is important to protect your rights by contacting an experienced Lexington wrongful death attorney. You have nothing to lose by setting up an initial meeting with a lawyer to discuss what they can do for you and what the potential benefits may be of using a lawyer to help you with your claim. However, you may risk your fair financial recovery if you delay contacting a Lexington wrongful death attorney.
