It’s never easy to deal with a loved one’s death. When that death comes suddenly in a Maryland truck crash, the rush of pain may be more than you can handle. Suddenly you find yourself overwhelmed with grief and thoroughly unprepared for the multitude of funeral details.
Amidst it all, the mundane tasks of life continue. The children still need attention. The housework still needs doing. Bills still need to be paid.
In fact, you may find yourself with a mountain of unexpected bills that you can’t pay. Additional expenses you might incur from a loved one’s death can include:
- Final medical bills
- Funeral costs
- Burial costs
- Loss of income from the death of the family’s breadwinner
- Loss of benefits (including family health insurance)
- Grief counseling
However, you may not have to pay for all these additional expenses on your own. If your loved one was the victim of a truck crash, you may be eligible to demand compensation for these unexpected expenses.
You may also be able to recoup compensation for the emotional toll the sudden loss of a loved one has taken on you and your family. Of course, no amount of money can replace your loved one, but it can serve as a reminder that your loved one’s death was not simply forgotten.
When the bills become overwhelming and detract from your ability to grieve properly, it’s time to call in a professional. An experienced Maryland truck accident attorney who specializes in wrongful death cases may be able to help you and your family obtain damages for these losses.
