When car crashes turn fatal, a family will have to deal with the fact that a loved one isn't coming back home. These situations are difficult for everyone involved, especially when there are young children involved. Even the adults might have some challenges with coping with these tragic situations.
We know that you probably need time to process what happened. You might not be ready to have to deal with anything else right now, but you need to remember that Tennessee laws specify how long you have to make legal claims after the wrongful death of a loved one.
You should remember that the purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit goes far beyond just trying to recover financial losses. Instead, you can use this as a way to hold the person who caused the accident accountable for his or her actions. By doing this in court, you are sending a strong message to them that what they did was reprehensible.
We are here to help you get your case together and file it. Before the filing, we will discuss the possibilities with you so that you can determine how you want to proceed. You are the person who has to make the decisions in these matters, so leave yourself time to think about each option.
As you think about how to proceed with your case, you need to make sure that you are keeping your lost loved one at the center of matters. Our goal is to help you do just that as we work toward trying to get you a settlement or present your case in front of the court.
