Navigating wrongful death lawsuits

Driving is an inherently dangerous activity. Yet, there are numerous safety features in vehicles and public safety initiatives aimed at curtailing the risk. As was discussed last week, though, fatal motor vehicle accidents are still common across Tennessee. Surviving family members of those who are tragically taken away in a car accident can be left with various types of harm. Of course there is the emotional pain and suffering, but the sudden loss of a loved one can also leave a family with unexpected medical expenses and funeral costs at a time when the deceased's lost wages are taking a toll.

Trying to figure out how to recoup these damages can be stressful, particularly when a surviving family may harbor a lot of anger against the individual who caused the fatal accident. These families can channel their anger, frustration and sadness into a wrongful death lawsuit, which may allow them to seek compensation for their losses. If successful, a wrongful death claim may bring a surviving family compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and funeral costs.

Filing a lawsuit can be challenging in its own right. There are rules of evidence that must be adhered to, and legal arguments need to be crafted with skill and backed by the facts and the law. Therefore, in order to put forth a convincing case, a surviving family may want to have the assistance of an individual with legal knowledge, who knows how to litigate and how to negotiate a fair deal.

At Costner & Greene, we dedicate ourselves to those affected by car accidents. We know the pain a family feels after the loss of a loved one, and we diligently and aggressively fight to recover the compensation they need to move past the accident and focus on remembering their loved one.
