When someone's actions result in injury or death to another, the aftermath can be devastating to the victim's loved ones. Close relatives often seek legal recourse in pursuit of justice for an accident that injured or killed their family member. A personal injury or wrongful death claim filed by victims or their surviving kin in Pennsylvania can help families pursue legal recourse.
Reports indicate that a male driver crashed his vehicle into a home early in the morning. The car hit the home in the vicinity of a bedroom. An elderly woman was in the bedroom at the time of incident and became trapped.
Emergency responders attempted to free her, but the woman succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the vehicle was able to remove himself from his vehicle of his own accord. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.
Authorities are unsure of the exact cause of the accident. Charges may be filed against the driver. Police are continuing to investigate the crash.
Those who suffer from injuries that result from the negligence of another can have lasting physical and emotional effects. Those who have been injured or the surviving loved ones of a deceased victim may wish to file a personal injury claim or a wrongful death civil suit. A Pennsylvania attorney can help families to navigate the legal process that such claims require. Monies awarded from a successful claim could help to cover medical costs, final expenses and/or other applicable financial losses.
