Two killed in car accident

A wrongful death claim is a type of legal action that protects surviving family members of victims of fatal accidents. A wrongful death claim can help family members recover compensation from a negligent party for damages suffered. These negligent parties typically include errant drivers who cause fatal car accidents.

In a nearby Ohio community northeast of the Mansfield area, a driver was recently detained following a fatal car accident. The fatal crash killed two victims and sent the driver of the other vehicle to the hospital with injuries. The 31-year old driver of the second vehicle involved in the wreck was detained, and authorities reported that they are still investigating the accident.

In addition to holding a negligent driver accountable, a personal injury claim for damages can help victims recover compensation for the physical and financial damages they have suffered. Damages surviving family members may be able to recover include compensation for the loss of support and services; loss of companionship; lost prospect of inheritance; and medical and funeral expenses. The extent of recoverable damages depends on the unique characteristics and circumstances of the victim, but they can potentially help surviving family members with the financial and emotional strain they may face following the unexpected loss of a loved one.

These legal resources, including wrongful death and personal injury legal remedies, are important options for victims and their families to be familiar with and to consider when they have suffered harm. They may be able to provide assistance during a difficult time for family members faced with a wrongful loss.
