On Tuesday morning just this week, a woman was killed when her car collided with a truck on State Route 56 in Center Township. Her name has been released at Lisa Jean Cooper of Rustic Lodge Road. Her car crossed into the westbound lane and hit a dump truck head-on that was being operated by a 57-year-old named Robin Smith. The coroner did not release her age, though she did die at the scene. The lead investigator on the scene found that she had not been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Both vehicles sustained disabling damage in the crash.
We understand that fatal accidents can be extremely concerning and have a major impact on your life when you have lost a loved one due to a horrific accident. Some fatal accidents lead to sudden death, while others end in eventual death, where a party could spend time in a hospital. If your loved one sustained eventual death, you may bring damages for aspects like pain and suffering on their behalf, as well as medical treatment bills as they sustained time in the hospital.
Has your loved one been killed in a devastating accident and you wonder if you can bring a claim? If you are a survivor of your loved one, such as a child who will be affected by the death, or a spouse who is now dealing with emotional trauma from losing their loved one, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim against another party. These cases can be extremely complex and include many elements, such as a statute of limitations to meet or a fight with the other party’s insurance company. This is why it is a good idea to have an experienced attorney on your side through every step of your case.
