There may be several wrongful death attorneys competing for your case; however, there is one simple reason why you should choose Timothy J. Ryan & Associates as your law firm—Tim J. Ryan knows what it takes to win.
Few attorneys can make that claim and actually have the experience and results to back it up. However, Mr. Ryan is one of the few attorneys that has the expertise, history of success, and know-how to give each of his clients and their cases what they need to succeed. When you are searching for a wrongful death attorney, you want a winner with experience.
How much experience a wrongful death attorney has in handling fatal accident cases is very important for several reasons. Because wrongful death cases involve complex legal issues and large damages, insurance companies assign their most experienced and skilled adjusters to claims involving a fatality.
Their firm has handled thousands of cases and has recovered more than $15 million on behalf of clients in the last year alone.
Insurance companies are fearful of Mr. Ryan and his law firm because they know that he has a proven record of recovering large settlements and verdicts for his clients. Therefore, those companies are more likely to settle cases during the early states for large sums of money to avoid paying out more money later on. This benefits their clients tremendously. While no amount of money can ever replace the person you have lost, it can help you pay expenses that you have incurred and provide for you and your family in the future.
Having an experienced litigator on your side to aggressively protect your rights while compassionately guiding you through the claims process is important. Your wrongful death claim is the only way that you can hold the party or parties responsible for the death of your loved one accountable for their actions. Mr. Ryan understands that this is a difficult time for you and that hiring an attorney may not be at the top of your priority list. However, the parties that caused the death of your loved one through negligence, recklessness, or carelessness should be forced to take responsibility for their actions.
This is where Mr. Ryan excels. As a passionate consumer advocate, he combines over 35 years of experience in the area of personal injury litigation with an understanding of the needs of his clients. Over the years, Timothy J. Ryan & Associates has held responsible parties accountable for the wrongful death of a loved one while making sure that clients receive the personal attention they need in order to begin putting their life back together.
