Losing a loved one is heartbreaking. But losing a loved one because of someone else’s negligence is heart wrenching! It is common for family and loved ones to be torn between wanting answers or wanting the negligent party held responsible, and appropriately mourning the loss of their loved one in a way that honors their life. In the middle of such a difficult time no one wants to deal with insurance companies where they are forced to relive the tragic circumstances surrounding their loved one’s death.
Wrongful Death claims are complicated and vastly different from your normal personal injury case. They require an attorney who understands not just injury laws, but probate laws as well. For instance, a Personal Representative must be appointed over your loved one’s estate before a claim can be paid by an insurance company. Moreover, only an heir of the deceased’s estate, as defined in Utah’s Wrongful Death statutes, can be appointed as that Personal Representative (See, U.C.A. § 78B-3-105). Finally, in settling the affairs of your loved one’s estate, all heirs and potential beneficiaries must be notified and included in the case.
