Mother and daughter killed in car accident near Huntington

Family members of fatal car accident victims have important legal protections and resources to consider after they have suffered the loss of a loved one.

A mother and her 5-year-old daughter recently died in a car accident that occurred late in the morning on January 27 near Huntington, West Virginia. The 5-year-old girl was flown to Cabell Huntington Hospital where she died; the child's 31-year-old mother was taken to a different hospital where she was pronounced dead. A 32-year-old man also involved in the car accident was taken to Cabell Huntington Hospital for treatment of his injuries. The man was listed in serious condition.

The loss of a loved one unexpectedly in a fatal car accident can be a tragic event in the lives of the surviving family members of the victim. Families may have pain and suffering damages, in addition to specific damages such as hospital expenses or funeral costs. Because of this, these kinds of damages, as well as some others, may be recovered through a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for causing the accident.

A wrongful death claim is a type of personal injury claim when the victim was lost as a result of the fatal accident. A negligent driver may be liable to the victim, or surviving family members of a victim, for damages suffered.

Surviving family members of victims face overwhelming emotional, and sometimes financial, challenges following the loss of a loved one in a car accident. Through a wrongful death claim, payment for damages suffered may be available to family members of victims.
