Fighting For Your Family After A Tragic Loss
If you are reading this, the first thing we want to say to you is: We are sorry for your and your family’s loss. At Olsen & White, LLP, we understand that it is never easy to begin taking the first steps following a loved one’s sudden death, and that even now, you may be unsure whether it is the “right” time to be considering your family’s legal options.
We encourage you to contact our Evansville personal injury firm and speak with one of our experienced attorneys. By getting even some preliminary information about your loved one’s death, we can identify the additional information we will need to determine whether a legal claim is possible. Most importantly, we can learn about how your family member’s death has affected your family emotionally and, yes, financially. We recognize that these are not easy things to discuss, and our attorneys and staff are committed to making your experience with a lawyer as pleasant as possible, even under these difficult circumstances.
Even if we don’t pursue legal action right away, it is important to establish a timeline for when taking action would be appropriate. Wrongful death claims have a two-year statute of limitations in Indiana, which means it is good to know how much time families can take before deciding to pursue legal action.
