Gabriela Garza Faces Charges Following Bicycle Collision

In a time when an unexpected tragedy like this one happens, one may feel devastated. Thus, it is crucial to know that if your family loses a member in an accident, you may recover damages through a wrongful death suit.

A wrongful death suit allows families to hold parties liable for the irrevocable damages they have caused. It is a civil action brought forth by relatives of a deceased victim whose death was caused by another person’s negligence.

One of its benefits is that it alleviates most or all of the financial burden the death of a relative has generated.

Meanwhile, did you know that nearly 1.25 million people are killed in car accidents every year?

That means, on average, road accidents cause 3,287 deaths per day. That is why traffic accidents are the leading cause of death in the U.S. for people aged 1-54.
