You have a right to pursue a claim after a fatal crash

After a fatal car accident, an investigation has to take place. You're reeling from the loss of a loved one, and the outcome of this investigation can help you move forward with a claim.

There are several things that happen when a fatal accident is investigated. One thing that the investigators do is look at the skid marks. Skid marks show that at least one driver tried to stop quickly, and they can show the speeds of the vehicles as well as what may have caused the accident.

A skid mark tells a lot about the accident. Investigators can show that the driver was speeding just by looking at the length of skid marks and the point when they stop. Another thing that helps when combined with the skid marks is the damage on the vehicles. Severe damage is often indicative of high speeds.

Finding out who is at fault for the accident, having it written down in a police report and determined by investigators helps you when you want to file a claim for compensation. You can give your attorney the fault information, which in turn gives him or her more leverage when working with the insurance company. By showing that the other driver was clearly at fault, it's easier to reach out for a settlement or to win when you go to court.

Our website has more information on car accidents and wrongful deaths. It's always a tragedy when someone dies in this manner, and you, as a family member, have a right to pursue justice on his or her behalf.
