Losing a loved one in a sudden car crash is devastating for family members. This is especially true if the car accident victim was a young vibrant child who was expected to live a long healthy life. Family members are frustrated by the sudden turn of events and often want answers and justice. Why did the negligent or reckless driver behave in such a manner that they caused a fatal accident?
The family members of a 13-year-old accident victim who died in a car accident in Massachusetts recently might be having the same thoughts as they come to terms with their loss. According to the police, two children were crossing the road when a car authorities believe was being driven by a 35-year-old man hit them. According to reports, not only did he strike the children but then he also drove away. The child was taken to the hospital to receive treatment for his injuries, but he later died at the hospital.
The man who caused the accident has been arrested and faces multiple charges, including leaving the scene of the accident. Police are looking into the events that led up to the crash.
When children leave the home, parents and family members always expect them to come back. When they don't, they struggle to come to terms with what has happened. Though it is not possible to quantify the loss they have suffered, it may be possible to hold the negligent parties responsible through a civil suit and get compensation for covering medical, funeral and other costs associated with a sudden death.
