Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Fatal auto accident results in more than loss of loved one

Receiving news or getting a phone call that your loved one has been involved in a serious car accident, and he or she didn't make it, is one of the most devastating events that can occur in a person's life. Lots of thoughts run through a person's head during this difficult and traumatic time. Most focus of the loss of the important person in their life. However, there is another type of loss many people suffer after suddenly losing a loved one in a fatal car accident.

That other type of loss people suffer is financial loss. If a family of four loses their father in a car accident, how does that affect how they pay their bills, plan for their children's college tuition and even make day-to-day ends meet? With the stress of everything else going on in their life, money should be the last thing the family has to worry about. One way to fill the gap is to petition the insurance company or negligent party connected to a loved one's death.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding a loved one's death, there are a few parties who may have a financial responsibility to a deceased's family. Oftentimes, insurance parties believe that they will not have to pay more than an 'X' amount sum to a family who has suffered a loss. However, at Easton & Easton LLP, we look at an insurance company's offer as simply a starting point. There could be many reasons that a family would be deserving of further compensation after a loved one's unexpected auto accident death.

The only way to find out is to seek additional compensation and refuse the initial offer made by an insurance company. It's true that this may require additional time and effort on the part of the family, but it can really result in a must better financial outcome for the family, especially in the long term. We know what a difficult time this must be for your family. There is no shame in seeking help from experienced professionals.
