Foley, AL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/25/2014 -- Families are often grieving and upset after the loss of a family member in a fatal car accident. Attorney Noel B. Leonard recently posted a blog outlining the steps families should take after losing someone in a car accident.
In Three Steps Families Should Take After a Fatal Car Accident, Noel B. Leonard advises families to find out what they need to win a wrongful death case. It is important to find out who caused the accident. The accident could have been caused by a faulty car or another driver. A skilled lawyer can accurately assess the facts to find out who was responsible for the car accident.
It is also crucial to file the case within the proper time frame. According to Noel B. Leonard, this period of time is referred to as the Statute of Limitations. Failure to file on time means the parties give up the right to file a claim altogether. The loss of a loved one is stressful but it is imperative to act immediately to protect the rights of a person who can no longer speak for himself.
When people hire an attorney, they have a skilled professional who reconstructs the facts and preserves the evidence. Noel B. Leonard also deals with the insurance companies to relieve families of this burden. Having legal representation to protect the victim's rights after death is a way to help families face the grieving process.
