Wrongful death suit may follow fatal accident that killed 3

Tennessee car accidents often have lasting effects on victims and their families. Many suffer serious injuries, while others are killed. When a car  accident fatality is caused by the negligence of another party to the collision, the decedent's family retains the right to file a wrongful death claim against that driver.

A recent car accident took the life of three individuals. It occurred in Clarksville on a recent Monday on Highway 13. It is believed to have occurred when a truck, driven by a 37-year-old man, crossed into the oncoming traffic lane and collided with another vehicle.

The crash resulted in the death of a couple, ages 20 and 19, as well their 11-day-old child. They were all pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. According to the police, the driver was also involved in a similar deadly accident in 2007 in which his truck crossed the centerline, crashed into three cars and killed his passenger.

The family of the decedents might seek to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver. Although this type of legal claim can do little to ease a family's grief, a successfully presented claim could provide some financial relief from the burdens that are often associated with deaths as tragic as these, including end-of-life expenses and other documented financial losses. A Tennessee family who is grieving the loss of a loved one typically consults an experienced personal injury attorney who can advocate for their needs, as well as assist them with the process of submitting a claim.
