When individuals die in a car crash that was caused by a negligent driver, their families may decide to pursue a wrongful death claim against this driver. For example, a personal injury lawyer may be able to establish liability by showing that an at-fault driver was distracted or intoxicated.

After a fatal car crash, investigators may be able to use crash reconstruction to piece together information about how the incident occurred and which party, if any, should be held accountable for it. If the investigation indicates that this was in fact the case, the driver may be required to provide compensation for any pain and suffering or financial losses the victim’s family have endured as a consequence of his or her actions.

The party responsible for a car accident may be liable for any catastrophic injuries suffered by others in the wreck. A lawyer who has experience with car accidents may be able to assess the evidence in a crash and find evidence of fault. On behalf on an injured plaintiff, the lawyer may then bring a lawsuit against the allegedly at-fault party or their insurance company. The lawyer might also try to negotiate a fair settlement that might include compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering and other personal injury damages.
