No case is the same

Claims from fatal accidents, called wrongful death claims, can happen in many circumstances:

  • Your loved one may have been the driver or a passenger.
  • He or she may or may not have been wearing a seat belt. If buckled, a seat belt may or may not have been defective.
  • The vehicle may have been hit head on by a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road.
  • An inadequately trained truck driver may have slammed into the vehicle, or a truck driver may have lost focus after driving for too many hours.
  • A drunk driver may have caused the crash.
  • Your loved one may have died instantly or may have died after an extended hospitalization.

At Elk & Elk, you will work with attorneys, accident reconstructionists and investigators who are committed to a painstaking and thorough investigation of the crash that killed your loved one. We will evaluate your options to determine whether you have a claim and provide you with experienced representation throughout the legal process.
