Not all fatal car accidents are clear cut. It is easy to hate a drunk driver, to be angry with a distracted driver, or to want to hold a driver who fell asleep at the wheel accountable for the death of your loved one.
But let’s consider some other scenarios. Would you feel the same way about a driver who caused a crash when he was rushing to the hospital for a medical emergency? How would you feel about a driver who lost control on a slippery road or an elderly driver who is devastated that she caused the crash? What if the driver who killed your loved one was your friend?
It Is Understandable That You Would Sympathize With Other Drivers in Some Situations
However, that does not mean that you should forego your legal right to a fair and just recovery for the horrible loss that you have suffered. Instead, it is not only okay but also advisable to file a lawsuit after another driver causes your loved one’s death because:
- It may be the only way for you to get a fair recovery. If you fail to pursue a lawsuit then you may never recover for the medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income, pain, suffering and other damages that your family has suffered.
- The recovery may not come directly from the other driver. Instead, it may come from the insurance company.
Filing a lawsuit does mean that you are judging the other driver. It simply means that you are looking out for your family after a tragic loss. To learn more, please start a live chat with us today or fill out our online contact form to request additional information.
