We have been entrusted by many families who have lost loved ones in fatal automobile accidents caused by drunk or negligent drivers. Our caring nature and compassion for our clients and their family members are well known and thoroughly documented in our online reviews. We fully understand the law, insurance regulations, and process when a family suffers the tragedy of the loss of a loved one.
There are two main legal causes of action when someone is killed in a motor vehicle collision. The first is caused wrongful death. Wrongful death is a claim by the family members of the decedent for their losses (monetary and non-monetary) from the loss of their loved one. The second cause of action is called wrongful survival. Wrongful survival is a claim for the pain and other damages sustained by the decedent before his or her death. In other words, it is compensation for conscious pain and suffering, pre-impact fright, and the like.
Every situation is different. Please be assured that our attorneys and staff are very respectful, helpful, and compassionate when it comes to assisting the family members of someone killed in a car or truck accident. You can feel confident that we will be understanding and helpful to you and your family and thoroughly explain all possible avenues of recovery.
Rest assured that we will diligently seek to make the legal and insurance claim process clear and less stressful. We will also do everything in our power to maximize the recovery when someone is lost at the hands of a drunk or negligent driver.
