How do I file a wrongful death lawsuit in Michigan?

When a family member dies in an accident or due to medical malpractice, the law provides a legal remedy to the surviving family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit.  To file a wrongful death lawsuit, there are certain court filing requirements that must be completed before the actual suit is filed.  First, there has to be a thorough investigation of the potential claim and damages to determine whether the case has merit.  Once it is determined to be a meritorious claim, a family member of the decedent is typically appointed as the Personal Representative of the estate of the decedent to pursue the lawsuit on behalf of the other family members. 

It is essential to choose the best Michigan wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible to pursue the lawsuit on your behalf.  At Buckfire & Buckfire, the attorney will prepare all of the necessary paperwork to get the case started as soon as possible so that we can begin our investigation.  We assist the family from start to finish and encourage entire family involvement throughout the entire process.
