Working with families who have suffered the tragic and unexpected loss of a loved one are some of the most difficult cases we handle at Jim Dodson Law. Simply because of the emotional issues that we are helping the family through. And in addition to this, the time to bring the claim is much shorter. Whether someone dies in a medical malpractice incident or in an accident, the claim needs to be brought within two years.
We always encourage families when they are faced with this type of tragedy to speak with an attorney at the earliest opportunity, just to make sure the investigation is being properly conducted and has been started timely. This is so that everything that needs to be done can be accomplished within the two year period of time.
