As someone who has just lost a loved one unexpectedly, the last thing on your mind is a lawsuit. This is understandable. Life took an unexpected turn and no amount of money can ever replace what you have lost.
Unfortunately, even in the aftermath of an unexpected loss, loose ends are all around you. Insurance companies call your home, bills from doctors arrive, there are funeral expenses, and depending on the circumstances of your loved one’s death, you might be contacted by his or her employer, the government, local organizations… even total strangers.
