Following the Interstate 8 accident, it is indeed important to have an independent investigation held to better protect your rights.
The benefit of getting yourself a wrongful death attorney is that they will help you get compensation for the economic and non-economic damages incurred as a result of the death.

It will only allow you to file a wrongful death lawsuit within a certain amount of time. When these expire, the legal claim is no longer valid. Thus, the loved ones can no longer file a lawsuit.
