It is impossible to imagine the difficult situation families must deal with when they lose a wife and mother. As Arizona wrongful death attorneys, we see these situations all too often. Our thoughts are with the family of this woman as they grieve their loss.
The accident occurred on Saturday in Goodyear where a mother and wife was sitting at a red light on her motorcycle when she was hit by a drunk driver (ABC 15 10/20/10). The driver was speeding, ran a stop sign, and killed her on impact. Authorities are still investigating the crash but have determined alcohol to be a factor.
We wish no family had to deal with such a tragedy. Drunk drivers cause nearly 12,000 deaths every year, costing the U.S. more than $51 billion dollars (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 7/30/10).
After a wrongful death, there are many questions left to be answered by the family, questions that they haven’t been asked before. There are many legal decisions to be made during a time in which they are experiencing a whirlwind of emotions. To help these families who find themselves looking for guidance, we thought there should be a guidebook, something that explains the timelines set in place as well as the legal implications. But this book did not exist. So we wrote it and expect it to be available to families in the upcoming weeks. If you’re looking for the experts in wrongful death law, give us a call today. We are the caring, experienced attorneys of Breyer Law, and we may be able to help your family get the compensation you deserve. You can reach us at (602) 267-1280.
