Wrongful Death Attorney
Investigators are likely looking into every possible factor including excessive speed, distracted driving, and intoxication in order to establish exactly who may have been liable for this horrific crash. Family members of all four victims may have solid grounds for a very serious wrongful death claim depending on the results of the investigation.
Many family members opt in favor of filing a claim for compensation due to the immensely high costs that generally follow a sudden death. Hospital bills, funeral costs, and loss of future wages are all very common reasons why many will choose to file a lawsuit. Nevertheless, only the family members of victims may make the choice to file a claim for compensation.
