Did someone else's negligence cause a fatal car, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident? When a loved one dies because of someone else's negligence, that is a wrongful death. At The Law Offices of Donald H. Peters, P.C., we help families learn what caused the accident and seek compensation for the loss of their loved one.
After you ask us to handle your wrongful death claim, we will begin an immediate investigation to determine how the fatal car or truck accident happened. Our attorneys and investigators will look at the accident from every angle to determine all of the potential accident causes of the crash and all the responsible parties.
Did a truck or car driver fail to see a motorcycle and turn in front of it? Did a car turn a corner without checking for a pedestrian? Accident reconstruction experts can help determine what happened.
Was your loved one in a car that was not crashworthy? Every car or truck should be able to withstand some impact. A roof crush accident or a rollover accident can be directly related to a car or SUV's design. The improper design or unsafe nature of a car can be one of the most important factors in how an accident occurred and how a wrongful death was caused.
Did component parts of a vehicle fail and cause the fatal car or truck accident? A failed seat belt, a defective air bag, bad brakes or other parts failures may have been caused by the vehicle's design or maintenance.
Did the road or highway design cause or contribute to the severity of the car, truck or motorcycle accident? Dangerous highways can be the result of not meeting federal or state requirements. Failure to maintain the road or highway — dangerous potholes, foliage that blocks visibility, improper maintenance of road shoulders, bad signage, poor construction markings — All can play a part in causing a fatal traffic accident that could have been avoided.
