Families of accident victims can recover damages

One of the most difficult times in a person’s life is when they have to deal with the loss of a loved one. The grieving process can be especially difficult when the person dies in a sudden and unexpected way. Fatal car accidents can leave families in complete turmoil, unsure about what to do next.

Fortunately, The Law Offices of Gismondi & Associates has years of experience assisting families with these next steps. The reality is that a number of Pittsburgh road accidents are caused by drivers who are negligent behind the wheel. These drivers should be held responsible for their actions and required to pay for damages.

In order to have a chance at acquiring these damages, a wrongful death lawsuit will be brought to benefit the victim’s family. A large number of wrongful death suits are the result of car accidents and medical errors. The family may recover damages to cover medical bills, funeral costs, and lost wages. The family may also be able to recover for the loss of companionship. Children who have lost a parent are often the most negatively affected. The child’s future should be made a priority by setting up a trust or a financial arrangement to make sure that their money is protected.

While nothing can bring your loved one back from a fatal injury, the attorneys at Gismondi & Associates will do everything in their power to assist you with your case and help you come to terms with your loss. For more information on filing a wrongful death suit, please visit our website.
