What Can Be Done After a Family Member Dies In a Car Crash?
June 28, 2013 | Car Accidents
Life is absolutely precious. Anyone who has lost someone to an auto accident can certainly attest to how precious and fragile life is. Unlike illness or old age, dying in a car crash is an abrupt, unplanned tragedy. In a matter of seconds, an entire family’s life can be turned upside down. One of the hardest questions to be both asked and answered is– what can be done?
Who pays for the funeral arrangements and associated costs?
With your life already turned upside down, you will have people contacting you about arrangements for your loved one’s remains. This might be something you have never thought about before the loss. Do not let this stress get you down even further. Assistance is available. If your loved one or family member was an insured driver, funeral benefits may be available through their own personal injury protection coverage. If he or she was uninsured but was killed by an insured driver, funeral benefits could be available from that driver’s insurance.

My team and I have always worked to help those who have suffered tragic losses in any way we can.

Call attorney Christopher Dixon at (314) 208-2808, and ask to speak about this matter.
What type of claim should be filed for the death of my loved one?
When someone is killed due to another driver’s negligence, it is considered to be a wrongful death claim in the eyes of the law. Although wrongful death is not criminal, it is a pursuable claim for damages against the responsible party and their insurer.
