When a loved one is involved in an accident it is often a serious and traumatic situation for everyone involved. An accident can cause unexpected financial stress and emotional trauma. If a person is injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may be entitled to legal recourse.
Deadly accident in Florence
A recent accident in Florence has claimed the life of one woman and injured another. The two women were crossing KY-18 near Woodspoint Drive when they were struck by a vehicle. One woman was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital where she was pronounced dead and the other woman was flown to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with serious injuries. The accident is still under investigation.
Experience is critical in personal injury
When a family has to deal with an unexpected accident that claims the life of a loved one it is a difficult situation. Their loved one was a valuable family member who contributed to the family both financially and emotionally. A legal professional who is experienced in personal injury can help a family who is dealing with the unimaginable loss of a loved one. They can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review the police report, and help the family get the answers they deserve as to what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
No one should ever have to go though losing a loved one due to another’s negligence. But when the unthinkable happens a family has the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake.
