What’s Next after Interstate 5 Fatal Crash
According to NHTSA, pedestrian accidents continue to rise in the United States. More pedestrians died in 2018 than in any year since 1990.
Unfortunately, untimely death due to another person’s negligence is becoming rampant.
Thus, knowing that when a person dies due to another’s negligence or misconduct, the bereaved can sue the negligent parties for the damages that they caused.
Some of the situations that could result in a wrongful death are homicide, transportation accidents, and pedestrian collisions. However, there are still other situations in which a person can die because of another person’s negligence.
One of the benefits of filing a wrongful death claim is that the economic and non-economic damages are into consideration. These can include high medical bills, loss of benefits, and funeral services costs. You can also add emotional distress, loss of income, loss of companionship, and much more.
