The unfortunate truth is that more than 40,000 fatalities are reported every year in the United States. Regrettably, our state is not immune to these accidents, as countless people lose their lives as a result of vehicle collisions annually. When an innocent victim dies as a result of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing behind the wheel, surviving family members may be entitled to recover financial compensation for the damages that they face by filing a legal claim against the responsible party.
As well as covering funeral expenses, medical bills, lost income, and providing some financial security during a difficult time, this type of financial relief can help to ensure that you are better positioned to move forward and deal with the unexpected loss of a loved one.
When it comes to pursuing legal action against the responsible party, you must be able to prove the elements of negligence existed at the time of the accident. This involves proving the defendant owed your loved one a duty of care, they breached it, the breach caused the crash that took your loved one’s life, and damages resulted from the accident.
