There is no loss that is more devastating than the loss of a family member. It’s felt by everyone in the family, from the parents to the children that have been left behind. It’s a tragedy, which is why those who remain have a right to pursue compensation from those who caused the fatality.
This mother killed in a crash after visiting her newborn twins is a devastating loss. Her husband told the news that the mother had waited 15 years to have her newborn baby girls. She had to travel back and forth to the hospital to see the premature girls, which is why she was on the roads the night she was hit.
Her life ended prematurely when an allegedly drunken driver crashed into her vehicle. She was heading home after visiting her babies at the hospital. She was just a mile from home.
The mother of six didn’t return home within a reasonable amount of time after calling her husband at 11:00 p.m., so he began to worry. He got into his vehicle and drove the route his wife would have taken. That’s when he discovered that she had been involved in a crash.
In this tragic case, the man lost his wife, and their children lost their mother. Sadly, situations like this are more common than they should be. People who lose loved ones in this way can pursue compensation to help with expenses such as medical bills, funeral costs and lost wages, but nothing will ever be able to replace the life that was lost.
