Losing a child in a car wreck is absolutely devastating. While dealing with the greatest loss a parent could face, the last thing you should be concerned with is dealing with insurance companies and defense lawyers.
We’re here to help take the pressure off you and your family by handling the investigation, communicating with the insurance company and their lawyers, and allowing your family time and space to heal. While our goal is to get justice for what happened, we also want to figure out how it could’ve been prevented, so other families won’t have to endure the loss of a child.
Plain and simple – someone’s recklessness took your child’s life. And they must be held accountable. Making a legal claim helps hold the reckless driver accountable in civil court. During the investigation phase of the claim, your legal team may hire experts to study the accident and what factors caused the crash to happen. A wrongful death car wreck claim can be against a reckless driver or even a company.
Damages That Can Be Pursued In a Wrongful Death Car Wreck Claim
The damages that can be pursued are:
- Pain and suffering
- Expenses for emergency medical care
- Funeral and burial expenses
- The emotional toll of losing a child
- And other punitive damages
Hiring a child injury attorney who is experienced in handling wrongful death car wreck cases is essential to getting justice for your child and family.
