The loss of a loved one is a difficult event to cope with. This is especial true for those who have lost a family member suddenly because of an accident. In some cases, the negligence of another party may be to blame. This could be a distracted driver, fatigued truck driver, negligent property owner, or even a negligent medical professional. When a party fails to uphold their duty of care owed to another, a fatal accident could result and give rise to a wrongful death action.
