When a Dallas Car Accident Turns Tragic

Submitted by jrlaw on Oct 12th, 2010

There are situations where a Dallas car accident can result in the loss of life and limb. In fact, thousands of Americans are killed in car accidents every year. Statistically, your odds of meeting your end in a car wreck are high and there are plenty of bad drivers out there who keep those numbers much higher than they should be. If you lose someone in an accident, you have legal options that may result in your receiving compensation for your pain, suffering, injuries and, if things go horribly wrong, your loss.

A wrongful death lawyer will represent you if you’re in a fatal crash. There are many cases where someone is specifically and undeniably at fault for such an accident. Drunk drivers are a particularly good example of this. These drivers are dangers to everyone and, all too often, that danger results in death. While they will face criminal charges, you can also file a civil suit to recover compensation for pain and suffering, as well as for the costs incurred for any medical treatment you required as a result of the accident they caused.

Employers have a duty to provide their employees with a safe work environment. In some cases, they may shirk this duty, resulting in their employees becoming injured or even killed. These are the types of cases that can be handled by a personal injury attorney. There are detailed laws and regulations that cover working conditions and, when they are broken and someone is hurt, you have a right to seek compensation from the employer. Some of these cases become egregious and the negligence exhibited by some companies is simply amazing.

When companies fail to adequately train personnel for their jobs, they create a situation where it’s very likely that those personnel could injure themselves or their coworkers. These cases sometimes result in death. Even in these extreme circumstances, you have the ability to seek a civil suit against the offending company. A wrongful death lawyer can handle such cases. They won’t be intimidated by the company and they won’t take a settlement unless it’s adequate to cover your pain and suffering due to the loss of your loved one. There have been many successful suits filed against employers who have put their workers at undue risk.
