Support for Families After a Tulare County Accident

Families who lose loved ones in traffic accidents can be targeted by bill collectors just days after a tragedy. A funeral service and burial to honor a family member can result in thousands of dollars in bills. The fees associated with 911 emergency response can also leave close relatives in thousands of dollars of debt.

In a tragedy that occurred through no fault of the victim or the family, it’s unfair for these consequences and more to fall on the deceased’s spouse, children, or parents. This is the purpose of a wrongful death claim. To protect families from the hardships caused by an at-fault driver.

Filing a wrongful death claim against a driver’s car insurance company can help stabilize a family financially. This support is especially needed as close relatives must suddenly do without the monetary support the victim provided through his or her job. In addition, a claim must address the lost support that close family members will have to do without in the years ahead.

In accident claims involving professional truck drivers, several insurance providers could be involved. Truck drivers may have their own insurance. They may also be covered by the local company they work for. An attorney can help sort out these complicated cases to make sure a family recovering from a tragic accident is never left in the dark about their rights as victims.
