Fatal accidents leave families wondering what to do next

It is a horrible thing to contemplate. You bid goodbye to a loved one as they leave for work or head off to pick up some groceries, but they never come home. Perhaps their car was involved in a crash or they were struck by a vehicle while they were on foot. Motor vehicle accidents can often result in serious injuries and even death, leaving you and your family with a sudden void to come to terms with.

Grieving can take time and it is likely that during that period you may not be able to give much attention to anything else. However, at the same time you may be wondering how and why the accident occurred. Could it have been prevented and who was responsible? Furthermore, you may find yourself uncertain about what to do next.

Funeral expenses can soon mount up and the loss of income as a result of your loved one's death can put a great strain on your family. Your entire lifestyle may change as a result of the accident as you work to cover the costs. Meanwhile, you could be waiting for answers, but even these may not offer the comfort you seek. Hearing that a loved one's death could have been avoided is a difficult thing to accept.

In such circumstances, it is important to ensure the accident is investigated diligently. You may decide on filing a wrongful death claim if the accident is shown to have been the result of someone else's negligence. Under Texas law, you have two years following the accident during which you can make a claim. If you have lost a loved one in this way, our page on fatal motor vehicle accidents may help you understand your options and decide what course of action you should take.
