Wrongful Death in Car Accidents
Losing a loved one in a tragic accident affects the entire family. A wrongful death claim is a civil case in which the survivors of a person killed by another party’s negligence — for instance, in a car accident — seek compensation from the negligent party. One way to think of a wrongful death claim is that it is like a personal injury claim, but because the injured person is no longer able to pursue justice, a family member or another party must step in to do so.
If you are struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one, your energy is best spent taking care of those you love and focusing on your own emotional needs — not fighting an insurance company.
