Nothing can prepare you for getting a phone call informing you that your loved one has been in a terrible collision. While the time following that call might be vague or cluttered in your mind, chances are you will always remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when the phone rang. If you recently lost a family member to a fatal auto accident in Florida, you might be navigating a wide range of emotions right now, especially if you believe another person’s negligence was responsible for the collision.
Driver error is often the cause of collisions that result in fatalities. As you began to ask questions after learning that your loved one died, you might have discovered upsetting details regarding the events that led to the crash. Maybe a driver involved in the crash was using a cellphone at the time. Perhaps criminal charges were filed against a driver because his or her blood alcohol content level exceeded the legal limit. Such issues, understandably, can add to your grief.
Many families who have suffered similar losses can relate to feeling like they do not know how to go on in life without the loved one who died. Trying to process the feelings of frustration or anger in knowing that such collisions were preventable makes trying to move forward all the more difficult. Many people find comfort in seeking justice on behalf of their deceased family members.
