Family members lose a loved on in crash at start of the year

The New Year means a new start for many individuals, but unfortunately it can end up becoming a tragic one if a family member is lost in a car accident near the end of the year. With the emotional turmoil come frustration and a need to answer questions such as what happened and who is responsible for this crash. When it comes to light that the accident could have been completely avoided if the negligent driver had not gotten behind the driving wheel while impaired, family members often feel like they might never come to terms with their loss.

These are perhaps the issues running through the heads of family members who lost a 69-year-old man in an accident in Indiana between a pickup truck and a car. A speeding car hit the back of the truck, according to police officials. The impact sent the truck into a utility pole, causing the accident victim to die at the scene of the crash. The 24-year-old driver responsible for the crash is suspected of having been under the influence of alcohol at the time, but criminal charges are pending at the time.

It is possible to pursue a civil action someone responsible for causing a motor vehicle accident, regardless of the status of the criminal charges. Financial compensation may be useful in making ends meet, something that becomes difficult if the breadwinner of the family is the decedent.

Holding parties accountable for their negligent behavior may not be the way accident victims and their loved ones anticipated starting off the year, but it can provide closure and compensation needed to facilitate recovery from an accident. It might be beneficial to consult an experienced attorney for guidance on how to get the compensation one deserves.
