Waldorf Car Accident Attorneys

If You’ve Been Injured in a Crash, Call Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC

According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 15 people were killed in Charles County, Maryland car accidents in the year 2009. Fatal car accidents may occur due to driver error or due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. When someone is killed in car accident due to the negligence of another, the family of the deceased car accident victim can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for damages. In such cases, victims’ families would be well-advised to contact a Waldorf car accident lawyer to examine their options.

Fatal Waldorf Car Accidents

There are many potential causes of fatal Waldorf car accidents. If an accident is caused by someone’s negligence, the victim’s family may be able to hold the at-fault party liable for the crash.

Negligent acts that could result in civil litigation include:

  • Exceeding the speed limit
  • Driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failing to properly yield right-of-way
  • Driving distracted

If it is determined that any of these types of negligent acts caused the fatal crash, the victim’s family may file a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver.

Waldorf Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death claim is a civil action that can be pursued by the family of someone killed in a Waldorf car accident.

A successful claim may result in financial compensation for:

  • Medical bills related to the crash
  • Funeral and burial expenses resulting from the death of a loved one
  • Lost future wages that the victim will not be able to provide for the family.
  • Lost benefits like health care no longer provided by the victim
  • Pain and suffering and emotional distress
  • Loss of affection

Families who seek legal representation from an experienced Waldorf car accident attorney have an increased chance of receiving fair compensation for their losses.

Eligible Parties for Compensation

Not everyone related to a car accident victim may pursue compensation with a wrongful death claim. Only the immediate family members or individuals who were given financial support by the victim may pursue damages. If the victim provided care to his or her parents, they may be able to pursue damages as well.

Injured Victims of Waldorf Car Accidents

Fatal crashes are not the only types of accidents that may lead to a civil lawsuit. Injured victims of Waldorf car accident may hold at-fault parties liable for the damages suffered in a crash by filing a personal injury claim. Like a wrongful death claim, a personal injury claim could result in financial payments for medical bills and lost wages as well as the other damages suffered.
