Death Due to An Accident

Death Due to An Accident

Losing a loved one is one of the most traumatic experiences imaginable. The heartbreak is often magnified  when the death is caused by some sudden, tragic incident–like an automobile accident. As you go through this difficult time, emotions are not the only struggle, as financial pressures can seem overwhelming. Business hums along as usual for the world, and while in grief you are still forced to deal with paying the bills. You may have also lost benefits that used to be provided by the employer of your loved one and wages that you counted on to get by each day may be gone.  At these times it is critical to understand that help is available.

Finding Help in Unexpected Places

During your grieving process, you may find that you are alone without your loved one beside you and that no one understands how you feel. Talking about your loss may help with the grieving process and you can do so with anyone who has a listening ear. If you find that it is too uncomfortable to speak to a family member or friend, then you should talk to a psychologist or other mental health specialist. If your loved one died at the hands of a drunk or reckless driver, then there are meetings you can attend that help victims and loved ones of victims express their pain in a healthy way.  For example, Mothers Against Drunk Driving provides a list of helpful services for those who have been affected by intoxicated drivers. Similarly, is a helpful site with a wealth of resources that aid in these difficult times.  The most important fact to remember is that you have people around that love and care for you, and additional help is always a phone call away if you need it.

Wrongful Death Claims

Beyond mental health therapy, some of the financial strain of the accident may be eased via the civil justice system.  Possible legal options after a passing depend on many different factors, including one’s cause of death. If your loved one died due to a negligent driver in an automobile accident, then you should not have to pay the costs described above. Instead, that negligent party or that party’s car insurance company should fully compensate you for your loss. While no amount of money can help you emotionally recover from such a loss, it should help to relieve some of the financial burden you now face. We are all subject to the risks of life but no one should have their lives snatched away by someone who has acted carelessly and with complete disregard to our safety. For these reasons, the law allows you to receive a fair settlement to offset these costs.

  • SARA T.

    I was referred to Attorney Ralph Gonzalez to take care of injuries sustained from a car accident where I was rear ended. Not only did they make sure I got the care I needed, but were extremely professional and thorough in communication to explain the processes, follow ups, and expectations. Just closed the case after some time with a bigger settlement than expected, and I couldn't be happier with the treatment/services received from this office. Will 100% recommend to everyone. Thank you!
