What Happens After Fatal Dallas Car Accidents Happen?
Fatal car accidents and truck accidents like the one mentioned above can have devastating effects on the surviving family members. These accidents are thoroughly investigated by the police so that the official cause of the accident can be documented.
Family members of the fatal accident victims may have the right to file a wrongful death claim against the estate of the at-fault driver. In this case, the families of the two people in the passenger vehicle may be able to sue the estate of the driver that was operating their vehicle on the wrong side of the road, causing the accident.
