Hold a negligent party accountable for causing a fatal accident

The loss of a loved one in a sudden and unexplained manner is probably one of the most difficult things a Rochester resident can go through. When a fatal accident has been caused by someone else’s negligence, then family members may be even more flabbergasted, not only as to how someone can be so reckless with another person’s life but also as to how they can hold the other party responsible.

One of the ways to hold a negligent driver accountable is through a civil suit. Lawyers at our firm can help surviving family members through the legal process. Wrongful death claims arise from a variety of situations, including fatal accidents, either car or truck accidents. Not everyone is as fortunate as the man mentioned in the previous post who survived a string of truck accidents. When someone does die as a result of a fatal truck accident, surviving family members may be able to hold not only the truck driver but also the trucking company responsible.

The attorneys at our firm understand that it is not possible to quantify the loss family members have suffered. Still, with the emotional pain comes unexpected financial issues, such as funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of assistance and guidance and loss of comfort and companionship. Loved ones have the right to be compensated for these losses under the law. We try to help families through the difficult time by focusing on the legalities so that they can focus on themselves.

When Minnesota residents lose someone, the legal implications of the accident may be the furthest thing from their mind. Still, consulting with an experienced attorney and seeking guidance on wrongful death lawsuits may be one way to ensure a family’s rights are protected.
