Many people erroneously assume that they will not be able to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit because a driver's negligence in a car or truck accident was not the only cause of death of a loved one.

Serious injuries from car and truck accidents can be just one of several contributing factors that eventually lead to a fatality. Family members may have a right to file a lawsuit for wrongful death of their loved one even if the death of the loved one occurs weeks or months after the crash, as long as the crash injuries (or the treatment for the injuries) were a cause of the death.

In these cases the death is the culmination of a sequence of events that started with a motor vehicle accident. The stress of the trauma, side effects of medications or exacerbation of a pre-existing condition could all have contributed to the ultimate result, which was death. Did your loved one die not long after a car crash? Talk to our knowledgeable, experienced wrongful death attorneys before making any assumptions about your legal options.

If a detailed investigation uncovers negligence by another person or corporation, you and your family may be able to claim relief for losses, including:

  • Final medical bills
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of the deceased person's financial contributions to the family
  • Loss of the deceased person's services to the family, such as child care or home maintenance and repairs
  • Loss of companionship
  • Grief and sorrow
