Losing a loved one is always a sorrowful, difficult experience. When a death occurs because of a sudden fatal auto accident, grief is intensified and can be challenging to manage. It is important for Florida families who are grieving to build a strong support network from the start.
Such support can include close friends and relatives who knew the decedent and can share memories and loving thoughts with family members. Many people also turn to licensed counselors for support to help process their grief and learn how to move on in life after the shock of a sudden death. If the collision in question was preventable and caused by driver negligence, it can also be helpful to join a community support group where others who have gone through similar experiences can provide encouragement and assistance to those who have recently lost a loved one.
The emotional trauma associated with sudden death causes tremendous, often long-lasting suffering. Beyond that, many families also endure serious financial distress because of medical expenses from care rendered to their loved one before he or she died along with funeral expenses and other issues. If another person’s negligence was the cause of a family member’s death, an immediate relative of the decedent may file a wrongful death claim in court to seek compensation for damages.
Rosenthal, Levy, Simon & Sosa are committed to helping Florida families seek justice after losing loved ones when a fatal auto accident occurs. Every human life is irreplaceable, and no amount of compensation can eliminate the sorrow of such great loss. However, court-awarded monies can provide financial relief to families who are struggling to pay expenses they were not prepared to meet.
