Fatal Accidents Attorneys
Fatal accidents leave in their wake a trail of sorrow and heartache. The individuals most often affected by a fatal accident are those not even involved in the accident– the loved ones of the deceased. The anger, sadness and grief can be overwhelming as feelings of complete helplessness wash over those whom death has touched. Such was the case for Rodger and Stacey when their mother was taken from them suddenly.
“We made sure the insurance company saw how special she was”
On April 29, 2010, the bus in which their mother, Geraldine (Gerry), was traveling as a passenger was t-boned by another vehicle, which just previously had run a red light. Geraldine was immediately dislodged from her seat and received a major blow to the head and blunt trauma to her abdomen. This last blow to the abdomen caused internal bleeding, which led to a mesenteric rent and eventually took her life. Rodger and Stacey removed Geraldine from life support on May 1, 2010, ending a life cut short by the negligent actions of another. Less than three weeks following the accident, Stacey came in for a free consultation. We answered her questions, and ensured her that we would be able to provide her the following services, as we do for all those clients who have suffered the death of a loved one in a fatal accident:
- Request a copy of the police report on your behalf;
- Allow you to focus on healing while we assume complete contact with the insurance companies, from the moment you hire us until your case is closed; and
- Ensure that you receive compensation for the years lost with the passing of your loved one
Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
Stacey hired us following the consultation. It then became our trust and privilege to help the insurance company recognize the immense void that Geraldine’s loss had left in the lives of her children. Though confined to a wheelchair and suffering from multiple sclerosis at the time of the accident, Geraldine was sharp, vibrant and strong, and we had the honor of presenting Rodger and Stacey’s case on behalf of their mother. Through arbitration, we received nearly double what the insurance company had initially offered. Of her experience with Christensen & Hymas, Stacey said, “Thank you for taking the time to get to know my mom throughout the case… It was an honor to have you represent her. You did her proud!” We are humbled by the words of Stacey and Rodger following the death of their mother, yet we are confident that this kind of service is typical to Christensen & Hymas. Integrity and compassion are built into the framework of this firm; therefore, we promise professional and genuine service for all those who have suffered the death of a loved one through a fatal accident.
