The Aftermath of a Fatal Road Accident
In the case of accidental death, the family of the victim should be aware of their rights under the law. This means that there may be a right to file a lawsuit against the people responsible for their loss. Those closest to the victim may have the right to seek compensation for their loss. Common examples include funeral expenses, then medical bills, and finally the “loss of consortium”. Loss of consortium 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.
