Seeking Assistance for Families After a Louisville Accident
The tragedy of car accidents doesn’t end at the crash scene. For the families left behind the feeling of loss will never go away.
After the loss of a loved one, an at-fault driver’s insurance company can be called upon to provide financial assistance. Through a wrongful death claim, a family should expect help with the costs of burial and a memorial service. The expense of emergency response and ambulance fees should also earn reimbursement.
It’s also critical that families receive support to sustain themselves in the future. They’ll be without the guidance and financial support a victim would have provided close relatives in the years to come.
