While there is never a good time to lose a loved one, a death in the family during the holiday season can be particularly heartbreaking. This is especially true when the death comes unexpectedly, such as through a car accident or after another traumatic incident. When the death occurs as a result of someone else's negligence, the surviving family members may have a cause of action for wrongful death against the responsible party.
It often seems as though life is too short, and for some Baltimore residents, that unfortunately happens to be the case when a person dies unexpectedly. When a fatal accident suddenly claims a person's life, it is not only tragic for the individual involved, but for the surviving friends and family members as well, who are left in a painful and difficult situation.
It was supposed to be a fun evening watching a local soccer game, but a tragic turn of events claimed the life of a 13-year-old Maryland girl and injured another woman, when a car ran up a curb and struck them near Eastern Middle School in Silver Spring.
When Baltimore residents suffer a personal injury, the physical pain and suffering caused by the injury can be life-changing. At the same time, however, the emotional and mental effects of suffering a serious personal injury cannot be forgotten. Individuals who have suffered serious injury themselves or who have endured the loss of a loved one know this all too well.
Many Baltimore residents who have been in a car accident know of the hassle that can be involved. From documenting the accident to dealing with insurance claims, even simple accidents can turn into prolonged events.
