Wrongful Death Lawyer in Rochester, MN
A wrongful death case in the family can shake your entire world in more ways than one. First, there is the obvious emotional side: the grieving, the anger, and the learning to move on and live without a key person in your life beside you. Second, there is the less-talked-about financial aspect of things. How will you pay for the funeral? Is there outstanding medical debt that you are unable to handle? How will your family survive with a loss of income (if applicable)?
Both emotional and monetary stressors quickly add up when it comes to death cases, so seeking legal action can sometimes feel like adding another commitment to your already overbooked and overstressed life. With JD Haas, you’ll never feel this way.

Below, for your benefit, you’ll find some common questions and answers we receive about death cases.
If you’ve come here to learn if your death case might qualify, we recommend giving us a call and getting a personalized answer. Generally speaking, though, to be considered a wrongful death case, your loved one must have passed away in an incident directly related to another entity's negligent or reckless actions. Losing said loved one must have caused you pain and suffering, either financially or emotionally.
A wrongful death case can play out in any number of ways. Generally, your Rochester wrongful death attorney will collect the applicable documentation (medical bills, police reports, and the like) and work with insurance companies to determine a cash settlement, which is then paid out to you. Occasionally, this settlement may be pursued in court.
You will receive any applicable money in a variety of ways: a large payment or many smaller ones. As implied in earlier answers, some or all of this money might come from an insurance company.
