What you need to know about a fatal car crash settlement.

You wouldn’t have ever even imagined being in this situation, having to file a fatal car crash settlement case on behalf of your loved one. You’re feeling bereft, completely devastated, and emotionally drained- the last thing you expected was to be faced with the many legal hurdles of a fatal settlement. There are many factors to consider when someone else is to blame for your loved one’s death and your personal legal case is completely unique to you, meaning the settlement will be unique too. 

Fatal Car Crash Settlements: What to Expect in your first meeting.

No doubt you will be feeling anger, frustration, and incredibly emotional throughout this meeting, it is important for your lawyer to understand the facts whilst supporting you and your family through this incredibly painful process. When you lose a child, spouse, or parent in a fatal car accident, the laws surrounding this tragedy are known as wrongful death laws. 

Wrongful death laws are in place in the state of Arizona to protect and represent people just like you and your family who have experienced the devastation of death as a direct result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness.

Fatal Car Crash Settlements: Who can file a wrongful death claim and who can accept the settlement.

If your spouse, child, or a direct family member has been involved in an accident then you can file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Sadly, if you’re a friend or neighbor and not related, you won’t be able to file a case for their accident. Your attorney will discuss the nature and circumstances of the accident with you initially to help establish and build your case.

You may have questions about how the at fault driver will be held responsible, who all the responsible parties are and what type of punishment, if any, they may receive. What is the timeline for a case, what does the criminal process look like? We can answer these questions for you and more. 

We can recommend resources for your grief. If your family was a victim of a drunk driver, we work closely with Mothers Against Drunk Drivers in their Phoenix office and can put you in contact with an advocate. If you need help with other related services, we are happy to help you.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
