I Filed a Wrongful Death Claim. What’s Next?

Contact Tony Nguyen Law Firm to book a free consultation and case assessment to determine if your case qualifies as wrongful death.

If your case qualifies, we will take you on as a client and gather all the necessary evidence to legally prove that the victim suffered wrongful death.

Once we put the case together, we will let the defendant know they’re being sued through their lawyer or their insurance company. Once the defendant receives a Claim Notification Form (CNF), they have 21 days to acknowledge they received it.

The defendant has three months to gather their own evidence and negotiate a settlement after acknowledging they received the CNF. From that point on, we will start the negotiation process.

Finally, we will strive to reach a settlement and win the case, either by getting the other party to admit responsibility for the wrongful death or by taking the case to court.
