How Mr. Guerra’s Family May Proceed
As the loved ones of the deceased victims grieve, it is important to recognize that if your family loses a member in an accident, you may recover damages through a wrongful death suit.
Ultimately, a wrongful death lawsuit gives the loved ones of a departed family member some semblance of justice. This is true even when the responsible party is still at large.
“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. That’s why hiring an experienced attorney can offer you peace of mind that you have a determined advocate, as well as someone that’ll make sure that your rights are respected, and that justice is served. Having legal representation after such a traumatic event will provide your family the space to heal while ensuring that your loved one is vindicated,” says Mark Sweet, a seasoned attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
