There are several possible answers to your question. Your wrongful death lawyer, for example, can advise you whether you have a potential case and decide whether he or she is going to represent you in that case, and you have the ultimate authority as to whether you want to file a wrongful death case after your loved one is killed in a Transit Authority of River City (TARC) bus crash.
However, what we suspect you really want to know is who will determine whether you can recover fair damages for your loved one’s death. Generally, the amount of damages that you can recover is going to depend, in part, on…
- The insurance company. If your case settles, then the amount of any recovery will likely be decided by the insurance company.
- The court. If your case goes to court, then a judge or jury will likely decide how much you should recover for the loss of your loved one in a TARC bus crash.
The evidence that you have and the arguments that your wrongful death attorney puts forth are going to be critical in determining how much you recover, either by settlement or trial damages. Accordingly, it is important to protect your rights as soon as possible by contacting a lawyer who can help you navigate the complicated wrongful death process.
