What Bereaved Family Can Do After a Tragic Loss in an Accident
According to the Association of Safe International Road Travel, more than half of all road traffic deaths occur among vulnerable road users—pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.
While assigning blame is usually one of the last things you would consider doing in a time of a devastating loss, the family of the victim must become aware that they have the authority to file a wrongful death suit. A wrongful death suit forces liable parties to become accountable for their actions.
