Pursuing a Car Accident Fatality Case

If the negligence of another driver was to blame for the death of a loved one, you may have the right to file a wrongful death claim. In a wrongful death suit, eligible family members essentially retain the right to seek compensation for the loss of their loved one, including both financial and emotional loss. In order to win a claim involving a death, a great deal of evidence must be present. Fortunately, at Breit Cantor, we are known for our thorough approach to case investigation. We partner with a network of exceptional professionals in various fields who can lend insight into our cases.

Common causes of fatal car accidents include the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions
  • Drunk driving
  • Car manufacturer defects

Whatever the cause of your loved one’s fatal car accident, you can be sure that our skilled team of attorneys will exhaust every avenue of investigation and hold the appropriate parties accountable.
