Question:

Can the heirs hire separate attorneys for a wrongful death case?

Answer:

In wrongful death case, there are often multiple survivors. Sometimes, they want to know if they can get their own lawyer for a variety of reasons. Maybe they don’t get along. It happens and it has happened once or twice at our practice. Survivors or heirs can hire their own lawyer but it is not something we recommend. It causes control issues and any number of problems, which can reduce the value of the case and would not exist if one lawyer represented everyone.

Heirs Hiring Separate Wrongful Death Attorneys

One thing that you must remember is a wrongful death case is prosecuted by the personal representative of the estate. That person is the quarterback of the case. That is the person who makes the decisions in the case. The heirs can hire their lawyers, and if there is disagreement, it can cause problems, notwithstanding the fact that the personal representative makes the final decision. If you have that situation and those questions come up in a wrongful death case in Nassau County, Duval County, or any of the surrounding areas, we can help. Call us today to discuss.
