How to Deal With Tragic Loss
In the case of this fatal car crash, it is crucial that the family of the victim become aware of their rights under the law. This means that they may have a right to file a lawsuit. It could be against a person, or company responsible for the loss of their loved one.
Those closest to the victim may have the right to seek compensation for their loss. Some common examples include funeral expenses, medical bills, and what is called “loss of consortium.” Loss of consortium generally means the deprivation of future affection and companionship over an untimely death.
“The aftermath of tragic accidents can make everything difficult for a family. The last thing most families want to deal with is piles of paperwork, questions from insurance companies or defense attorneys, and attempting to obtain police reports. Grieving and handling legal claims don’t exactly go hand in hand, this is why hiring an experienced attorney can not only provide you with peace of mind that you have a fighter in your corner but having someone to make sure that your rights are respected and that justice will be served. Having legal representation after such a traumatic event will provide your family the space to heal while ensuring that justice is brought to your loved one,” says Mark Sweet, a seasoned attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
