Financial Burdens of a Wrongful Death
Drunk driving can cause a variety of terrible consequences, with one of the most devastating being the wrongful death of a loved one. In addition to these consequences, the financial effects of a wrongful death caused by drunk driving can be especially difficult for a grieving family. When a loved one passes away unexpectedly, one of the last things his or her family wants to think about is paying for costs such as:
- Notices to family members
- Memorial costs
- Funeral costs
- Emotional therapy
However, these and other costs can quickly add up in the event of a wrongful death and many families are unable to financially afford them. Fortunately, a family may be able to legally hold a drunk driver financially responsible for various costs if he or she causes the death of a loved one.
Losing a loved one unexpectedly is hard enough, without the added burden of financial responsibilities. If someone in your family has been killed by a drunk driver, you should speak with an attorney about holding the person responsible for your loss liable.
