The loss sustained in a fatal accident is obviously much greater than that not involving the death of a loved one. Aside from the immense grief that a family experiences through the permanent loss of a father, mother, son, or daughter, the family will lose the support that was provided by that family member. A fatal accident often takes away from the family the benefit of insurances, pensions, and other means of support the family received prior to the death of the family member in the accident.

Attorneys and Wrongful Death Claims
