Wrongful Death Lawyer

A forensic examination of the vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not the driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.

Depending on the results of the investigation, the family members of the deceased may have the right to a wrongful death claim. Surviving family of victims killed in pedestrian accidents are potentially entitled to seek compensation for funeral costs, and loss of love and companionship.
