Following a fatal pedestrian accident, the family may be able to bring an insurance claim for their economic losses and pain and suffering losses. These claims, often referred to as wrongful death claims are among the most egregious of personal injury claims. It is difficult for families to seek legal counsel during the time of mourning the loss of their loved one. Unfortunately, the insurance company recognizes this and may be aggressive in its effort to settle these claims before the family has the opportunity to consult with a lawyer. If an insurance company representative is contacting you after a fatal accident, it is time to call a personal injury lawyer. Know your rights before you speak with the insurance company.
