What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Car Accident Wrongful Death Attorney

Car accidents happen so quickly and yet the effects can be permanent. Sometimes victims of car accidents are left with chronic pain or disabilities. Worst of all, sometimes families are left grieving for the loss of a loved one. When fatal accidents are caused by one person’s negligent or reckless behavior, surviving family members are often left with intense anger at the responsible party, as well as the pain of mourning.

At the offices of wrongful death attorney Don Guthrie, we are committed to seeing justice done. In addition to any criminal charges the responsible party may be facing, you may have grounds for filing a wrongful death suit.

Why File a Wrongful Death Suit?

Sadly, people who file lawsuits after losing a family member are sometimes stereotyped as greedy or callous. People who make these accusations are merely unaware of the realities of coping with medical and funeral expenses after losing a family member’s income. It would be nice if practical concerns could be put on hold while a family recovers from a devastating emotional loss, but life doesn’t work that way.

In addition to easing a small part of a surviving family’s burden, wrongful death suits also allow these families to feel that in some small way, justice has been done. It is not fair for innocent people to shoulder the financial burden of other people’s mistakes. A wrongful death claim is one way to hold the offender responsible for his or her actions.

Don Guthrie has seen the ease of mind that families can receive when staggering medical and funeral costs are finally covered by the people responsible for them. Though a monetary judgment can never be true compensation for the loss of a family member, it does go towards easing families’ anxieties in a small way.
