Fatal Car Accidents
A fatal car accident is one of the most traumatic experiences that the family of a loved one can experience. Because fatal accidents happen so unexpectedly, there is no time for closure. The friend or family member is seemingly ripped away, suddenly and unjustly. Loved ones are left behind to start the long process of grieving and deciding what to do next. If you are facing this situation, rest assured you are not alone. Even in the darkest times, you have certain legal rights that can and should be protected.
In cases of fatal car accidents, the law steps in and provides legal recourse to the family members of the victim. In Massachusetts, a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought against a driver whose negligence causes a fatal crash to occur. Wrongful death lawsuits may be brought in any type of accident from speeding, to reckless driving to OUI and more as long as the negligent act led to death of another individual.
