The loss of a loved one is an emotional event that many of us struggle with. While death is a part of life, it can be challenging to cope with the death of a loved one that suddenly occurs because of a tragic accident in California or elsewhere. In these events, surviving family members have many questions, including whether it was preventable.
In the event of a fatal accident, one often questions what the cause was. In many cases, especially with automobile collisions, negligence is to blame. Whether a motorist was distracted, reckless or intoxicated, these negligent acts could have contributed or was the underlying reason an accident occurred. Thus, it is important for loved ones to consider fault and liability following a fatal car accident.
