We strongly recommend that you hire competent counsel to advise you regarding your rights. This area of the law is very complicated in part because it depends largely on where the wrongful death occurred and in what Court a resulting lawsuit could be brought.

It is important to realize that there is a distinct deadline in every jurisdiction for making claims arising from a wrongful death. For example, in the District, you have just one year after the death to file a wrongful death claim (3 years to file a survival action). This means it’s very important to speak to Washington DC wrongful death attorney as soon as possible about a potential case.
