The occupants of the stolen vehicle included Vincent Bynum and Carlos Rosario, both in their 30s. The two men, both from Allentown, were charged with receiving stolen property. The minivan was previously owned by a New Hampshire women before being stolen from the hands of the owner’s daughter.

Wrongful death suits most commonly stem from extremely negligent situations that happen on our roadways when we lose a loved one as a result of these actions. Sometimes, they stem from a driver who was texting instead of watching the roads or by someone who decided to drink and get behind the wheel of a car. No matter what, negligent or even criminal actions would definitely give rise to a wrongful death claim under the circumstances.
Just as in the case of Keith Krammes where the drivers were driving a stolen vehicle as they made their getaway, many cases like this are brought every year in the U.S. Have you lost a loved one as a result of another party’s negligence and now you want to bring a claim for aspects like loss of income, loss of consortium, medical and funeral expenses or other aspects of your case?
