Personal injury lawsuit after crash may cover medical expenses

Drivers on British Columbia roads are responsible for the safety of their passengers. For this reason, no driver should get behind the wheel of an automobile if he or she is under the influence of alcohol, drugs or prescribed medication. The same goes for drivers who know they suffer from medical conditions that could cause emergencies if they fail to manage their illnesses -- else they could be held liable for medical expenses and other financial damages of a passenger injured in a crash.

Following the death of her daughter in March this year, a British Columbia mother now has to adjust to living without a loved one. The person responsible for the death of this young woman will spend four-and-a-half years behind bars and is banned from driving for 10 years.

Losing a loved one unexpectedly is naturally a devastating experience. Knowing that another person's negligence caused such a death can make the loss even more traumatic. Along with the heartache and grief, the surviving family members also have to cope with unanticipated expenses. Although no amount of money can fill the void left by such a tragedy, financial losses may be recoverable by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Such a lawsuit may follow a fatal crash that occurred on Highway 1 in British Columbia on a recent Saturday.

Upon the unexpected death of a loved one, the pain can be unbearable.

This is where a wrongful death claim can bring relief.
