A woman suffered life-threatening injuries in a pedestrian accident and died a day later. The accident is currently under investigation, but it appears that the cause of the accident was due to the recklessness and irresponsibility of a motorist. If the motorist is determined to have been at fault, he could be held responsible for the pedestrian’s wrongful death. Additionally, the area of the fatal accident is dangerous for pedestrians because part of the roadway does not have sidewalks. If the road conditions are determined to be dangerous to the public, the city may also be liable for the woman’s wrongful death.
It is always difficult to hear about the loss of a loved one due to an auto or pedestrian accident. Determining fault can sometimes be a complicated process. Insurance companies will try to reach a quick settlement and limit recovery to the lowest possible amount. The last thing this family wants to deal with during the pain and grief process is the legal and financial issues, but it is important to avoid the trap of agreeing to settle too early for too little.
A wrongful death attorney can ensure that the family’s rights are protected, help determine who may be at fault, and decide the best course of action in recovering the maximum compensation for funeral and burial expenses, anticipated and future lifetime earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other damages related to this pedestrian accident.
While the family may eventually receive a financial settlement to compensate them for their loss, they may experience a shortfall in their finances that could lead to a significant financial hardship. If this happens, the family may benefit from a “lawsuit loan.”
