When you received the call that your husband had been involved in a collision, you thought you’d have plenty of time to get to the hospital. You didn’t realize how badly he was hurt or that he was close to death.

A few moments after you arrived, you saw how serious the crash had been. Your spouse was hooked up to monitors and going through tests. The medical team warned you to be prepared for the worst, even though they were working hard to prevent your spouse from passing away. 

Sadly, he did not survive the night, and you’re now dealing with the fallout. You have just lost your best friend, but you’re also having to deal with funeral arrangements, medical bills and other impacts of his death. 

Dealing with a wrongful death is painful, but you can get help

It is true that dealing with a wrongful death can be very hard. That’s why it’s a good idea to ask for help if and when you need it. Your attorney would be happy to help you with filing a claim for your loved one’s wrongful death while you focus on other aspects of the situation, like putting together a funeral and arranging to have family arrive.

When your loved one passes away because of another person’s mistakes, it’s fair to want to hold that negligent party accountable. You may want to file a lawsuit early and allow your attorney to negotiate on your behalf, so you can focus on your personal life and all the changes that are occurring now.
