CBS DFW reported that on Friday afternoon, a North Texas teenager was driving home when a driver in a stolen vehicle crashed into his car, killing him. The accident took place on Highway 287 in Midlothian during a police pursuit. The family is currently asking police if the stolen vehicle was even worth pursuing since the consequences were so great. It is heartbreaking when a loved one is taken from you. Joe at Joe Knows Law helps families that go through these types of horrible tragedies. A wrongful death suit can’t ever bring back your loved one, but compensation can help cover the financial burdens that stem from a deadly accident.
What Is Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death suit is brought by the family of someone whose death was caused by the negligence of another. The liable party then pays the family compensation for medical bills, loss of companionship, loss of income, and other damages. Every case is unique and has certain circumstances and situations that may impact the outcome. If a negligent driver has killed your loved one, you need to seek the advice of an experienced wrongful death attorney.
Find an Attorney
The first step in filing a wrongful death suit is to schedule an initial consultation with a knowledgeable attorney. Bring all documentation having to do with the accident with you and be prepared to talk about the facts of what happened. A good attorney should be compassionate, caring, and provide you with a legal strategy moving forward.
