Dealing With Fatal Auto Accidents
In the tragic accident in San Jose, the family of the victim must become aware of their rights under the law.
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.
