Dealing with something as complex as a wrongful death often requires legal help.

The circumstances under which an event like this occurs can vary greatly, so choosing the right attorney is critical. 

It takes years of experience and a high level of skill to sort through all the details of your case, identify all potentially liable parties, and make sure you get the maximum compensation possible. 

For example, if the death was due to a vehicular accident, several different parties might hold some responsibility: the vehicle’s owner, the vehicle manufacturer, the municipality where the death took place, even a bar owner who may have served the driver alcoholic beverages. Uncovering details like this has helped us win millions of dollars for our clients.

Your Onder lawyer will

  • evaluate your case and help you understand your options
  • start investigating your claims, gathering evidence to prove your case and identifying who was responsible for the injuries you suffered
  • determine the compensation you might be entitled to receive
  • handle paperwork and negotiations on your behalf and keep track of important deadlines

 

We can also represent you in negotiations with insurance and legal representatives, so you don’t have to deal with them. 

We can negotiate for a fair settlement on your behalf or, if necessary, fight for maximum compensation in court.

How can we help you?

If you want to file a wrongful death lawsuit, having the help of a personal injury lawyer from OnderLaw will be invaluable. 

Here are steps we’ll handle for you:

  • Prepare documents. We’ll draft a complaint, laying out all the elements of the case, and a summons that notifies the defendant that they’re required to appear in court on a specific date. We’ll then file these documents with the appropriate civil court.
  • Serve the complaint and summons. We’ll hire a process server to deliver the documents and hand them over to the defendant.
  • Begin discovery. After the defendant files their answer to our complaint, your Onder attorney and the defendant’s attorney request copies of evidence. We’ll also file documents asking each party to answer questions concerning the case and submit documents needed to investigate the accident.
  • Schedule depositions. During discovery, we may schedule a deposition to ask the defendant questions under oath about the case. It is conducted in front of the defendant’s attorney and recorded by a court reporter. 
  • Request mediation. We may request a meeting with the defendant, their attorney, and a mediator to try to reach a settlement agreement. If we agree to compensation that you believe is fair, we can avoid going to trial.
  • Prepare for trial. If we’re unable to settle during mediation, we will begin to prepare for trial, gathering evidence, locating witnesses to testify, and preparing our arguments for court.

Keeping up with details and deadlines is a big part of successfully filing a lawsuit, but we know how overwhelming that can be. As an OnderLaw client, you won’t need to worry. We’ll take care of meeting necessary deadlines so you can stay focused on your recovery.

If we don’t win, you don’t pay. So you can focus on moving forward.

Jabar Gaddie

For them to have already have met for settlement talks in my case is quite impressive. I have never had any communication issues with them. They are quite thorough and have no problem updating you on your case, just give them a call. Be proactive in your communication with them and patient as they fight for us. I understand concerns regarding the time frame, I often daydream of being financially secure and providing a better life for my family, that day will come. I trust Onder Law.

Suzanne Reynolds

I have nothing but confidence in Onder Law Firm. I’ve had the honor of meeting several of their staff at a social event and my fiance has since signed with them to handle a claim against a company. What alot of these people who have left bad reviews about them fail to realize is that their types of cases don’t get resolved overnight, they have a massive caseload on top of an already delayed court system, and they’re not going to call you just to say they have no update on your case They are going up against billion and trillion dollar companies who have an endless supply of resources. Be patient and let your attorneys do what they do…… THEY WILL WIN FOR YOU AND THEY WILL WIN BIG. They’ve never hidden the fact that the process will be long. But it WILL be worth it.

Robert Read

They are so friendly and caring. I trust them. They are doing the right thing for me and my family.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Every case is unique, so it is a challenge for us to provide a time frame without knowing the details of your case. Some wrongful death claims may be resolved more quickly than others. Time frames can depend on a wide variety of circumstances. Some firms may promise quick resolutions to get a victim in the door because no one wants to think that their case is going to take months to resolve. However, wrongful death cases are often extremely detailed and complicated.

We focus on transparency and results. Until we review your case, we won’t know how long it may take to resolve. What we can tell you is that we will thoroughly review your individual situation. With the details of your case in hand, we’ll be able to give you a realistic outline of when you can expect a resolution.

We communicate with you regularly, promptly responding to your calls and emails; and we guide you through the entire process. You can rest assured that you’ll always know where you stand and how your case is progressing.

Wrongful death is a broad category of law and can refer to a wide variety of incidents, causes, circumstances, and responsible parties. In some cases, a single individual is at fault; in others, such as with defective pharmaceuticals or consumer products, a lawsuit may be filed against entire companies.

The following is just a small sample of wrongful death situations that we have experience handling:

  • medical malpractice
  • automobile and pedestrian accident fatalities
  • airplane disasters
  • deaths due to preventable structural fires
  • defective drugs and medical devices
  • deaths caused by other faulty products
  • workplace accident fatalities—especially in dangerous occupations

Fatal injuries caused by the negligence of others are possible in almost every aspect of daily life. We are fully prepared to take on even the largest and most imposing companies for you and secure the compensation that you may be entitled to receive for your loss.
