Roughly 1.3 million people die every year because of car accidents. Injuries sustained in car accidents can be fatal if medical care given is too late or the severity is too extreme. Brain traumatic injuries, internal bleeding, nerve damage, and spinal cord injuries are hard to treat entirely in a time-sensitive scenario and lead to death.
It is extremely distressing to lose a family member to death even in normal circumstances such as age. An auto accident is unpredictable and causes a premature death which is more challenging for family members to cope with. Legal complications arise after a car accident that grieving members can not deal with properly. An Idaho car accident attorney can help you receive proper compensation to relieve you of your financial troubles caused by the passing away of your family member.
Filing a wrongful death claim.
Family members can file a claim against the negligent driver to receive compensation for the damages they suffered because of the family member that passed away. In cases such as the deceased member being the main source of income for the family or the primary caretaker of the household and children, these charges apply. Funerals and burial arrangements are expensive and can cause further strain on the members. The settlement also contains the necessary amount to fund your arrangements.
Survival actions claim.
This claim can be filed on behalf of the victim by family members such as the spouse, parents, or children to receive financial compensation. This includes various expenses.
- Medical care: Before passing away, the victim’s life could have been tried to save by surgeries, medication, and other treatments. Details about the injuries the crash caused, along with the methods taken, are provided in the report collected by your car accident attorney to use as evidence.
- Property damage: Automobiles are expensive to repair, and the crash might have rendered it to a non-functional state. To fix and repair the damaged parts, it is necessary to have the necessary finances. Your attorney ensures that these are covered by your settlement.
- Emotional damages: The victim’s mental state before death, which was anxiety, depression with weariness regarding future prospects, and the well-being of their family because of their loss of income, can be compensated if proven in court.
A car accident lawyer will ensure that the compensation received secures the family’s future after the passing away of their loved one.
