British Columbia family has possible cause for wrongful death

Driving while intoxicated, driving while distracted and driving at excessive speeds are recognized as the deadly triumvirate prowling British Columbia highways. At times, however, the cause of an event, especially an ill-fated one like a head-on collision, is obscured by what didn't cause it. Yet, even when authorities initially rule out any one of the deadly trio, the potential for a wrongful death lawsuit remains available.

Wrongful death claim could follow British Columbia hit and run

There are two killers loose on British Columbia highways known as Impatience and Panic. When drivers follow each other along a single-lane highway, keeping a safe distance is standard protocol, just as on multiple lane highways. In fact, even more caution is required when driving at night through rural terrain or when frontal visibility is limited. When impatience to pass into an oncoming traffic lane overwhelms a driver's good sense, he or she may rob someone of life, giving ample cause for a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wrongful death lawsuit may follow deadly British Columbia crash

Some time in the late 1990s, car pooling became increasingly prevalent on major British Columbia highways. Sharing one's vehicle with one or more passengers is a partial solution to saving on fuel and reducing traffic volume. Passengers, however, like drivers, take on virtually all the same risks associated with road travel. In a shocking turn of events last week, a passenger lost her life, conceivably giving her grieving family cause to consider a wrongful death lawsuit.

Car accident on British Columbia highway related to holiday rush

After Canada Day on July 1, the next statutory holiday in British Columbia is Labour Day weekend. It always seems a long way off because it's one of the best times to visit friends or family or finally take that road trip with the kids in tow. Unfortunately, it's also a time when a car accident is more likely, throwing a wrench in carefully made plans and possibly giving cause for a personal injury lawsuit.
