“Writing this book I was really writing for an audience, an audience that is suffering. It forced me to put myself in their shoes for an extended period of time and on a greater level.

Attorney Russ Hymas, Managing Partner of the Christensen Law Firm, has been working on a new guide book explaining what actions to take and things to consider after your family has experienced wrongful death. The book is expected to be released in January 2012.
Mr. Hymas recently sat down for a question and answer session about the his book new book and this is what he had to say:
Why is this book important for wrongful death victims?
“So many people who have lost a loved one have questions and have to deal with these questions while they are grieving. Then you throw all of the legal issues and questions on top of that and it is very overwhelming. There are many processes that people often do not know how to navigate. For example, who to contact to get funeral expenses paid for. This book is a guide for those family members so they don’t feel like they are just treading water.”
What would you like people to know and understand about wrongful death and this book?
“Wrongful death is a question that no one wants to ask. It is a sensitive subject because when you lose someone you love, the last thing you want to be debating is financial matters. At the Christensen Law Firm we do everything we can to get to know the clients and the loved ones they lost. We also make sure that insurance companies do the same. We often video tape interviews of family and friends and send the interviews to insurance companies so that it is impossible for them to think of those families as just a claim number.”
What was most meaningful for you about writing the book?
“Writing this book I was really writing for an audience, an audience that is suffering. It forced me to put myself in their shoes for an extended period of time and on a greater level. It helped me to feel a greater empathy for them. It was an unexpected but appreciated outcome.”
Mr. Hymas’ book is a topical guide for wrongful death. It is dedicated to providing guidance on planning funerals, dealing with grief, dealing with probate and estate issues, a breakdown of the legal process of a wrongful death case and what factors are considered by courts in evaluating a case. The book is a must read for anyone suffering from the effects of wrongful death.
