Coping With Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash
It is clear now more than ever that one person’s negligence can have devastating effects on other individuals. This is quite common in accidents that result in death.
Thus, it is important that the loved ones of the deceased become aware that they have the authority to file a wrongful death suit. A wrongful death suit allows families to hold parties liable for the irrevocable damages they have caused. Depending on the type of situation, settlements can be anywhere from several hundred thousand dollars to tens of millions of dollars. Alleviating most or all of the financial burden the death of a relative has generated.
Moreover, according to NHTSA, pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities continue to rise in the United States. More pedestrians and cyclists were killed in 2018 than in any year since 1990.
