Dear Customer, thank you for using our service. I would like to assist you today. Responses may have a short delay for review and research.
I am sorry to learn about this matter, and I am very sorry to learn of the loss of life in your family, please accept my condolences.
I believe you may be having trouble finding counsel partially because you are asking attorneys to take on the case on the wrong basis - asking an attorney to work "pro bono" means you are asking the attorney to work for free (they aren't going to do this for this kind of case). HOWEVER, you can likely find an attorney that will take this case on a "contingency fee basis" - meaning the attorney will advance the costs of litigation
and their legal services in exchange for a portion of your recovery (so you don't have to pay any out of pocket expenses).
Be patient when trying to find an attorney, you may have to call a few civil litigation
attorneys before you find one. You have a rather unique case, but I do believe you have one worth pursuing. The statute of limitations
issue is a rather complicated one (I do advise moving quickly), but there are some factors that can likely act in your favor to "toll" them ('delayed discovery' etc.) if this becomes an issue - a local attorney can discuss these in more detail but if you move quickly at this point, I don't believe it will be an insurmountable problem or issue.
You can find local civil litigation attorneys using the State Bar Association directory:
, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com
; or www.Martindale.com
(I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
