Collecting After a Fatal Accident

On Behalf of | Jun 29, 2015 | Fatal Motor Vehicle Accident, Firm News

People sometimes wonder why they’d even want to collect compensation after a fatal accident in Connecticut. After all, money cannot bring the deceased back or erase the past. They don’t need money for rehabilitation future medical care. Does it still realistically make sense to seek compensation?

The reality is that it absolutely does, as there are still many costs associated with the death. This starts with emergency health care costs as the crews try to save the person’s life. If that person spends a few days in the hospital before passing away, the cost could easily be in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars.

It could also include the cost of the funeral, the burial and other final expenses. These seem to be getting more expensive every single year. When these costs are sprung on a family in an unexpected manner, it can be hard to pay.

Furthermore, you must consider the financial loss. If the person who passed away was also the one working and paying the bills, it can be hard to make it without that income. Even if it was just a portion of the family’s income, the loss can be difficult to take.

Finally, you may deserve to be compensated for your stress and suffering. You’ve lost someone close to you, and the toll this takes cannot be overstated. While money may not take this grief away, that does not mean you should be forced to suffer due to someone else’s mistake without any compensation.
