Motor Vehicle Accidents And Wrongful Death Claims

Claims When a driver’s negligence results in someone else’s death, the family of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim. In fact, fatal motor vehicle accidents are one of the most prevalent reasons for filing wrongful death claims. If criminal charges are not made against the person responsible for the incident, for whatever reason, filing a civil suit against them may be the only way to seek justice. A wrongful death claim, though, is not a criminal case. While a wrongful death claim will not result in criminal charges or jail time for the negligent party, it may result in financial compensation for the victim’s family to help alleviate or reduce the economic impact of their loss.

At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. we understand how difficult and confusing this time can be for you and your family. It is important that you know that filing a car accident wrongful death claim is not the equivalent of submitting a claim to your insurance company. At all times an insurance company acts in its own best interest, and it is in the best interest of the insurance company to settle your claim inexpensively and quickly. An insurance company and its attorneys look out for their rights, which is why it is so important that you hire us to look out for the rights of you and your loved ones.

When someone else is to blame for the loss of your loved one in a motor vehicle collision, they have already caused irreparable damages that you and your family must endure for a lifetime. Our team of Buffalo, New York wrongful death auto accident attorneys at the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. will assist you in gathering the necessary evidence to build a strong case to help you and your family obtain the compensation and justice that you deserve.
