Car accidents are almost always devastating experiences that happen far too frequently. Although drivers have a legal responsibility to drive safely at all times, the main cause for all accidents is negligent driving. Negligent driving comes in many forms, including texting, eating, talking to another passenger, speeding, driving under the influence, or searching around the vehicle for a lost item. All of these actions distract the driver from paying attention to the road.
A fatality is always tragic for family members no matter the cause. It ‘s not only hard to come to terms that a loved one is no longer alive, but it can suddenly become a financial burden to try to pay for medical and funeral expenses. Because there were two fatalities and two injuries, wrongful death, and personal injury lawsuits might fail depending on what investigators conclude regarding the cause of the accident.
