Losing a loved one can be devastating. If their death was caused by a holiday traffic accident, then you may have a wrongful death claim. Las Vegas NV traffic accident lawyers from Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright can discuss with you different ways the law can help you with the situation.
When does a death from a traffic accident qualify for a claim?
When a traffic accident results from a driver’s negligence or violation of the law, then injuries or death resulting from the accident could give rise to a wrongful death claim. Some common holiday accidents that could occur include:
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Driving under the influence
- Drowsy or impaired driving
- Distracted and inattentive driving
- Texting while driving
If you lose a loved one from a traffic accident, it is important that you contact an accident law firm in Vegas as soon as possible to discuss your options.
Why should you contact an attorney?
An attorney from an accident law firm in Vegas can provide legal advice that may prove crucial to a claim. An attorney can help you understand how the law protects you and provides remedies. If the situation meets the legal criteria for a wrongful death claim, then an attorney can file a claim on your behalf and represent you in the claims process.
An attorney will be able to draw upon their experience to help you know what to expect. If settlement offers are made, an attorney can help you assess whether the offer is fair and just under the circumstances. This will give you peace of mind, which is especially important as you cope with the loss of a loved one.
