Support for Families After a Turlock Pedestrian Accident
The families of pedestrian accident victims are often given little time to grieve before the bills that follow a tragic collision come due.
For close relatives, filing a wrongful death lawsuit against an at-fault driver’s insurance company will be necessary to cover these sometimes enormous costs.
Family members should receive full support for the cost of a memorial service and burial. They should get help with ambulance fees and any other hospital bills left behind. A claim should also seek economic help for a spouse, children, and grandchildren as they face a future without guidance and financial support from the deceased.
