FAQs About Car Insurance After a Fatal Car Accident

There are many questions after there's been a fatal car accident. While every accident is unique, we hope to answer a few of those questions right here.

Who will pay medical or funeral bills?

The driver's insurance that was at fault should cover all expenses- including medical bills from survivors, funeral expenses, and more. Every case is different with different types of settlements so it's always a good idea to talk to a fatal car accident lawyer before you count on specific outcomes.

Can I sue the responsible driver?

Yes, if the other driver was fully at fault, you can recover damages, such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost wages
  • and more

Hiring an experienced fatal truck accident lawyer will help ensure you get the most compensation possible. While we know money doesn't bring anyone back, we also know that not having to worry about finances helps tremendously while you grieve and heal.

What do I do if the other driver does not have insurance?

These cases are rare, however, they do happen. The good news is that you still have options if the responsible driver doesn't have insurance. In many cases, your own policy will have the coverage you can tap into. Remember- insurance companies will do everything possible to pay the least possible. Hiring a car accident lawyer can help you get the most out of insurance companies.
