We are saddened to hear of this fatal injury accident in Chelmsford. We frequently encounter these types of accidents in our everyday law practice. They are difficult for all involved and there are simply no easy solutions when a loved one has passed away unexpectedly and suddenly in a fatal collision.
When a fatal accident occurs, the last thing on your mind is hiring an attorney. However, if your loved one was wrongfully taken from you due to the negligence of another, the surviving heirs may have legal rights. In such cases, the legal remedy is a wrongful death claim filed by the estate of the deceased. These claims are typically brought by the next of kin and request money for the loss of a loved one. Wrongful death claims are very complicated and should never be attempted without the aid of an experienced attorney. In this injury accident, it remains unclear who was at fault for causing the collision. Ultimately, the state police investigation will reach a conclusion to determine who may be at fault in the accident.
