Factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, distracted driving or negligence often cause traffic collisions. These auto accidents usually results in serious injuries, or worse death. Once the investigation process is over and it proves that the motorists involved in the alleged speed contest have neglected the safety of other people on the road and have led to the victims’ death and injuries, the families of the deceased and wounded men may have the right to pursue a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault parties.

The victims and their families will need a professional representative in court to help them obtain the justice and maximum compensation for all the hospital bills, medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income and pain and suffering. No amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one or the trauma of any injured person, however, it is important that the victims and their families know their legal rights.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
