It is wise to seek legal advice early on in the claim process to prevent your legal rights from being lost or compromised.
Morgantown, WV (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
West Virginia Wrongful Death Attorney Jeff Robinette has released a new book, Beside Still Waters: West Virginia Fatal Injury Guide, which provides surviving family members the information they need in order to move forward after tragedy and to enable them to rebuild a financial future for themselves and their children.
When a premature and wrongful death occurs in a family, the entire family structure is shaken to the core. The family is not only deeply impacted emotionally, but also financially, especially when the primary income earner is the one who has been prematurely taken in death. In West Virginia, this most often involves oil and gas drilling industry workers and contractors, co al miners, construction workers, and truck drivers.
When an individual is fatally injured, that person’s rights are not cut off at the time of death. Their rights and obligations are carried forward as part of their estate, and their family is left to sort it all out and will naturally have many questions.
When a “wrongful” death occurs, two common questions arise from the ones left behind: “Who has the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit,” and “Who is entitled to recover for their losses?”
This is the purpose of Beside Still Waters: to provide surviving family members with essential information to enable them to make wise decisions in order to maximize their efforts to rebuild their lives.
