There is nothing that can compare to the shock of that phone call, text or whichever way one receives the news that a loved one has been in a terrible accident. Sometimes the person, despite all the odds against them, pulls through. Other times, the injured isn't so lucky. After the immediate shock wears off, many family members wonder where to go from here?
If there is even the smallest suspicion that a loved one's unexpected death was due to a fatal accident, this is worth pursuing. Accidents can happen in which one or more parties' actions directly or indirectly caused or resulted in a loved one's death. Since parties like drivers, businesses and other related parties owe a duty of care to the average person, that duty can be breached. If that breach of duty resulted in the death of a loved one, this is grounds for a wrongful death suit.
