When they arrived, they discovered Hamilton and Traves thrown from the vehicle. Officers pronounced them dead at the scene.

Responding officers also found a severely injured person in another vehicle.

Apparently, a southbound car on the freeway blew their tire and the vehicle overturned.

What’s Next After a Fatal Crash?

Unfortunately, sometimes, a person’s negligence can lead to devastating results for other people. This is quite common in accidents that result to fatalities.

It is likely that the bereaved are entitled to significant compensation via a wrongful death claim.

A wrongful death claim is brought against a defendant who has caused someone’s death, either through negligence or as a result of some intentional action.
 
Depending on the type of situation, settlements can be anywhere from several hundred thousand dollars to tens of millions of dollars. Ultimately, it lifts the financial burden the death of a relative has generated.
 
Therefore, having a wrongful death attorney can help you attain compensation on medical bills, loss of earnings, future medicals, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and more.

That is why we strongly recommend for you to hire a lawyer to serve as your legal representation.
