When a loved one dies in an accident, seek assistance


Most car accidents result in minor inconveniences for the drivers and passengers in the cars involved. People have to call their insurance company, get their cars fixed and might be a little stiff. People might complain for a day or two, but then move on. However, when a car accident is serious, or fatal, people may not really know how to move forward. A fatal accident can take a lifetime to recover from, not just a few days. Tennessee residents may even lose some of the people closest to them.

A fatal car accident requires a very different approach then a normal fender-bender. People need to be able to look at the situation from a financial point of view, as well as an emotional one. They need to be able to determine how much the accident has cost them in terms of medical expenses, lost wages and funeral costs. Additionally, people need to look at their own emotional damages -- the loss of companionship, loss of parental guidance or pain and suffering -- caused by the accident. The total of these costs may be recoverable in a wrongful death action.

When in this situation, it can be very hard for people to see past their own emotional pain to make these decisions. Not only are people often unaware of how the law works in this situation, they cannot act as a unbiased party would to determine how much financial compensation is enough. In some situations, therefore, a family may accept an insurance settlement, for example, that is much too low to cover the costs of accident.

In these situations, the attorneys at our law firm can help. We can take the emotions out of it, and calculate the true costs of the accident. Further, we can negotiate with the insurance company to make sure that people receive a fair settlement following the loss of a loved one. Our attorneys can keep your best interests at the center of the case, and not those of the insurance company.
