What Can Be Done After a Family Member Dies In a Car Crash?

Life is absolutely precious. Anyone who has lost someone to an auto accident can certainly attest to how precious and fragile life is. Unlike illness or old age, dying in a car crash is an abrupt, unplanned tragedy. In a matter of seconds an entire family’s life can turned upside down. One of the hardest questions to be both asked and answered is– what can be done?

Who pays for the funeral arrangements and associated costs?

With your life already turned upside down, you will have people contacting you about arrangments for your loved one’s remains. This might be something you have never thought about before the loss.  Do not let this stress get you down even further. Assistance is avaliable. If your loved one or family member was an insured driver, funerual benefits may be avaliable through their own personal injury protection coverage. If he or she was uninsured, but was killed by an insured driver, funeral benefits could be avaliable from that driver’s insurance.

Call attorney Christopher Dixon at 314.409.7060 or 855.40.CRASH, and ask to speak about this matter.

What type of claim should be filed for the death of my loved one?

When someone is killed due to another driver’s negligence, it is considered to be a wrongful death claim in the eyes of the law. Although wrongful death is not criminal, it is a pursuable claim for damages against the responsible party and their insurer.
