Compassionate Legal Help For Your Family

No one expects a family member to be in a serious car accident, and no one is ever prepared to hear that a loved one has died in an automobile crash. When it does happen, life comes to a complete stop as your family is left in shock, unable to process the reality of the traumatic event.

Your Right To Financial Compensation

While nothing will ever replace the love and companionship of your loved one, it is important to understand that you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses, including:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity (for children)
  • Loss of comfort
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss to society
  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses before death
  • Pain and suffering before death

In order to secure financial recovery, however, you will need the help of an experienced wrongful death attorney.

The most dangerous hour for fatal crashes during the week is between 6 and 7 p.m. on Mondays. The day with the most fatal crashes is Saturday, and the day with the fewest fatal crashes is Thursday. During the year, most fatal crashes happen in the month of August.
