Officials shut down a California freeway for approximately three hours so investigators could work the scene of a deadly accident. Four people were injured in the collision, including the driver accused of causing the wreck. Sadly, a child was killed. A fatal accident such as this can be extremely distressing to injury victims and loved ones who survive the fatally injured.
An unexpected death is a complicated situation for surviving family members to handle. Families often struggle to cover funeral expenses and adjust to losses in income. These financial damages can make it difficult for families to fully process their loved one's death, and concern over money can even interrupt the grieving process. If a California family has experienced the loss of a loved one, it may be extremely important to pursue just legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
