On Behalf of | Jul 5, 2019 | Wrongful Death

The wrongful death of a loved one can set your world spinning. You might have had plans with them, or you could have been interested in seeing them soon. Unfortunately, the unpredictability of death makes it impossible to plan for when someone you love will pass away.

Sadly, many people’s lives are cut short when others make errors on the roads. This is fairly common in Florence, where Interstate 71 becomes congested every day. It’s actually highly uncommon to see the highway free and clear of vehicles, construction and accidents.

What should you do if you lose a loved one in a car crash in Florence?

If you lose a loved one in a car accident in Florence, the best thing you can do is to reach out to your attorney as soon as possible. Families of victims can seek compensation to cover funeral expenses and other losses that they’ve suffered as a result of their loved one’s death.

If you plan to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the manufacturer of a vehicle, a driver who hit your loved one or another party, it’s important that you have information about the case for the court. Keep documents about your loved one’s death and information on the expenses related to the collision. With this kind of documentation, it’s possible to file a claim for compensation that covers your losses as well as additional compensation for pain and suffering and other needs. Your attorney can talk to you more about what to expect if you file a wrongful death claim in court.
