How to Proceed in Case of Fatal Crash
In the case of this fatal car crash, it is crucial that the family of the victim become aware of their rights under the law. Indeed, there may be the ability to file a lawsuit.
Those closest to the victim may have the right to seek compensation for their loss. Some common examples include funeral expenses, medical bills, and what is called “loss of consortium.” Loss of consortium generally means the deprivation of future affection and companionship over an untimely death.
“The aftermath of tragic accidents can make things extremely tough for a family. The last thing most want to deal with is piles of paperwork, correspondence with insurance companies or defense attorneys, or reading police reports.
