Cabell area car accident kills one woman and injures others


A recent Cabell area car accident left one woman dead and two others with injuries. One person was confirmed dead and two others were taken to the hospital following the head-on collision. The victim that died in the car accident was a 35-year old woman. Traffic had to be closed in both directions following the accident. Police reported that the cause of the fatal collision was not immediately known.

A car accident can happen unexpectedly and leave a variety of victims in its wake. Those who have lost a loved one in a car accident may wish to pursue a wrongful death claim against a party responsible for the crash. The party's liability will be determined based on any carelessness, or negligence, the party engaged in to cause the car collision. Families may be able to receive compensation for damages resulting from the loss of a loved one.

The damages that may be recovered in a wrongful death action are based on the characteristics of the victim. In determining damages, the age, character and condition of the lost loved one, as well as the lost loved one's earning capacity, health and intelligence, life expectancy and the circumstances of the surviving family members, may all be considered. In general, surviving family members may be able to recover for a loss of prospect of inheritance, support and services and medical and funeral expenses. The amount of compensation will depend on the damages and the unique circumstances of each loss; for instance, a child who has lost a parent may be able to recover for the loss of parental guidance. Pain and suffering damages may also be generally recoverable to family members.

The unexpected loss of a loved one in a car accident can cause emotional loss, as well as financial losses. A trained personal injury attorney can aid a family considering a wrongful death claim against a negligent party through the process and offer guidance at every stage.
