Have You Lost a Loved One in an Auto Accident?
The Moore Law Firm provides only the highest-quality, seasoned legal representation, particularly in car accident cases that led to the injury or death of another person. The moment an accident occurs, you should think about your options for filing a claim for compensation. Our Cincinnati wrongful death attorneys fight wholeheartedly to help our clients find financial recovery.
Common Causes of Fatal Car Accidents
All drivers are held to a standard of care when driving. They have the duty of exercising caution and preventing an accident from occurring. However, drivers still continue to disobey the laws or drive recklessly and put others in harm’s way.
Fatal car accidents may involve any of the following:
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving or road rage
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drowsy drivers who fall asleep at the wheel
- Failing to adjust driver to weather or road conditions
- Inattention to traffic lights and posted signs
- Defects in brakes, steering, or other auto equipment
When you are involved in an auto accident, retaining legal counsel should be your top priority, especially if it involves the wrongful death of another person. Our Cincinnati wrongful death attorneys network with a team of investigators and use only the most cutting-edge technology to investigate cases further. This is what helps us determine who or what caused the accident and who should be held liable.
Compensation for Wrongful Death
No amount of money will ever be enough to fully compensate the relatives of a person needlessly killed in a catastrophic auto accident. Families struggling to make ends meet after a loss should know they are entitled to compensation for contributions the deceased would have provided if the fatal accident had not occurred. Directly depending upon the circumstances of the accident and the cause of collision, the compensation can include but is not limited to:
- Payment of medical bills and emergency care incurred because of the accident and before the death
- Funeral expenses
- Expected loss of income and future earnings of the deceased
- Expected loss of services, care and protection which the deceased offered
- Loss of medical or retirement benefits as the result of untimely wrongful death
- Pain and suffering of the victim before death
- Mental anguish of family members
- Loss of consortium and companionship for surviving spouses
- Loss of parental guidance for surviving children
Relief for Grieving Families
After an accident, many families do not even want to think about going to court or the prospect of a wrongful death lawsuit. This is understandable; however, the Statute of Limitations on personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits is strict, and if you miss it, you lose your ability to sue. Once you contact our attorneys, we will immediately do what necessary to protect your rights in the best manner possible. This often includes filing a lawsuit, beginning an investigation to discover and preserve the evidence, as well as taking care of many other details while the family begins the coping process. As evidence and witnesses quickly erode or disappear, anyone who lost a loved one due to a catastrophic auto accident or semi-truck accident must seek help at once.
There may be other financial or insurance benefits in the interim that can help surviving spouses and children while the case is pending. We will investigate all avenues of relief to help relieve the burden for grieving families. If the car insurance companies or other parties involved will not settle without litigation to the satisfaction of our clients, we are seasoned litigators who will be ready and willing to take the case to trial.
