What Happens When Someone Dies in a Car Accident Case?
As a Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney, perhaps the most difficult cases to handle are when somebody dies in the accident. You’re dealing with the grief and the loss of a loved one. You have to be able to explain to the client that this type of case is different than a standard personal injury case. Normally, in a regular personal injury case, you’re suing for pain and suffering, but when somebody dies you have what’s called a wrongful death case. That means you are suing for the wrongful death of that person. The elements of damages that are involved in a wrongful death case are different than a normal personal injury case.
