Frequently Asked Questions

When you schedule your free consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Reno, Nevada, you should come prepared with specific questions for us to address.

Grieving families are not expected to know who to file a lawsuit against. We understand that there may be circumstances where you do not know all the details surrounding your loved one’s death. Therefore, we want you to continue focusing on your family and ensuring that everyone’s emotional well-being is taken care of while Kidwell & Gallagher handles the details of your case. 

Our lawyers will do everything in our power to find the facts and evidence regarding your loved one’s accident and accurately identify the responsible party. Some of the evidence we may collect to do this are:

  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Doctor testimonies
  • Photographs from the scene or of injuries
  • Video footage of the scene or injuries
  • Witness statements

If your loved one has died unexpectedly, you must contact a lawyer as quickly as possible. The reason why we recommend this is that evidence can become harder to gather as time passes. For example, if your loved one died in an accident at work, the business may try to cover up or fix the conditions that caused the accident. Also, witnesses who saw the accident may forget important details if it has been a long time since it occurred. Therefore, you must hire an attorney who will work quickly to build a strong case against the defendant using all available evidence.

Finding the best wrongful death lawyer in Reno will increase your chances of receiving compensation for the wrongful death of your spouse or family member. While you can certainly represent yourself in any type of case, a wrongful death case can quickly become tricky and complex. That is why hiring an attorney who knows how to navigate the legal process and understands the laws surrounding wrongful deaths is recommended.

At Kidwell & Gallagher, we have two of the finest Reno wrongful death lawyers you can count on. They are aware of the stresses and hardships you are experiencing, such as how to pay for your loved one’s medical and funeral costs, how to continue getting by and paying bills without the help of their income, and how to move forward with your life without them. As a result, both attorneys are very compassionate and understanding, and we will do our best to take some of the pressures of the legal process off you. While you focus on getting back on your feet, we will handle the hurdles and challenges of your case and only reach out when needed.

Ultimately, we believe you will see how much we care about our clients and how hard we work to stand up for their rights. Talk to an experienced Reno wrongful death lawyer from our office today to build a case for compensation after the tragic loss of a loved one.
