Liability in Fatal Car Accidents
If your loved one died in a fatal car accident, it is crucial that you
discover how the crash was caused and who was liable. Responsibility for
the incident could lie on several people’s shoulders, and sometimes
more than one person could be at fault for a single wreck. If the accident
was caused by a vehicle defect, the auto parts manufacturer or vehicle
designer might be at fault for the accident and the loss of your loved
one. If the crash was caused by a road hazard caused by poorly maintained
roads, then the owner of the roads could be liable.
In most cases, the other driver involved in the crash is liable. Whether
the driver was on his or her cell phone,
intoxicated, or simply not paying attention, if they caused the crash, even unintentionally,
they may be liable for the resulting damage and the loss of your loved one.
Understanding Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death claims can only be filed by close relatives or the spouse
of the deceased. If someone dies, their spouse, children, parents, and
siblings can file the wrongful death claim. However, in certain cases,
the deceased individual’s wards or others who relied on that individual’s
support and income might also be able to file a claim.
Emotionally, the loss of a loved one can be hard to deal with. For domestic
partners or spouses of the individual, they must deal with the loss of
companionship, while children lose the support and guidance of a parent.
As difficult as the emotional loss may be, the death of a loved one can
also cause a significant financial burden.
After a fatal accident, families must consider funeral arrangements, burial
expenses, and any medical bills left from their treatment. If the deceased
individual was the breadwinner in the household, the family must also
deal with the loss of that individual’s income.
