Life is precious. Those who have lost someone they have known to an auto accident can attest to how fragile life is. Unlike disease or old age, dying in an auto accident is abrupt, unplanned and always a tragedy. In the blink of an eye a family’s life can be turned upside down. One of the most harrowing questions to be asked and answered is… what can be done?

Who is responsible for funeral arrangement and costs? With your life already in a tailspin, you will have people contacting you concerning arrangements for your loved one’s remains. This may be something that you have never even considered or thought about prior to your loss. It is important to know that assistance is available. If your loved one was an insured driver, funeral benefits up to $10,000 may be available through their own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. If your loved one was uninsured, but was killed by an insured driver, funeral benefits may be available from that driver’s insurance. Please feel free to contact me directly. My team and I have always strived to help those was have suffered a terrible loss in any way we can. We will be more than happy, free of any charge or cost, to investigate what benefits are available and to help you find someone who can help you make arrangements no matter what your financial situation. Call the law office of Dan Newlin & Partners at (407) 888-8000 now, ask to speak with me directly concerning this matter.

What type of claim can be brought for the death of my loved one? When someone is killed as a result of automobile negligence, it is considered to be a wrongful death in the eyes of the law. Whereas wrongful death is not criminal, it is a pursuable claim for damages against the party that is responsible and their insurance company.
