Supporting Families After Fatal Accidents
A motor vehicle accident that results in sending someone to the hospital is distressing, but in many cases, an injured driver or passenger can recover in time and expect to return to a normal life. Money can help provide economic security, but preserving the person’s life is always the most important thing. The death of a loved one in a motor vehicle accident, on the other hand, may devastate and permanently negatively affect a family in completely different ways due to the permanent nature of the loss.
A family member’s death under any circumstances is always disorienting and painful. An accidental death brings extra dimensions to that loss, including questions like:
- Why did this happen?
- Who was responsible?
- How will we pay expensive funeral and burial costs?
- How will we live without the income, household duties and companionship that this loved one used to provide?
- How will we achieve closure and healing so we can look with some optimism toward tomorrow?
A family may suffer significant economic hardship on top of the emotional pain. A wrongful death claim can help bridge the gap between loss and recovery. You can get answers to your questions and if the accident was the responsibility of another party, compensation to cover your expenses and provide for your economic future. This is where the SCV Law Firm, PLLC can assist you with our years of experience dealing with these most serious of cases, wrongful death cases.
The Value Of Compensation
Legal action cannot bring back your deceased loved one after a car accident, but it can help your family cope with financial losses, including final medical bills, funeral and burial costs, and replacement of the lost income from the deceased family member, if applicable. A sizable verdict or settlement also sends a message to others who might drive negligently (and their insurers) or other responsible parties.
The SCV Law Firm, PLLC can guide you through the process of pursuing the appropriate level of compensation for a wrongful death under your unique circumstances.
Who Is Eligible To Bring A Wrongful Death Claim?
In almost all cases, a spouse and/or minor children can bring a wrongful death claim. In some cases, other relatives, such as parents or grandchildren, may qualify. To determine if you are the right person to bring a claim, please speak with a wrongful death attorney at the SCV Law Firm, PLLC.
