Fatal Car Accidents: Should I Sue on Behalf of My Loved One?

Did you know that there are more than 150,000 vehicle crashes in Tennessee each year, or an average of about 500 per day? wrongful_death

Sadly, nearly 1,000 people are killed in fatal car accidents on Volunteer State roads each year. Whenever this occurs, family members must hold negligent drivers liable by filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of the lost loved one.

Tragically, on November 4, an Antioch man was killed in a Nashville crash when another driver allegedly turned his SUV into the man’s vehicle.

The crash reportedly occurred when the victim was driving his Buick Century south on Nolensville Pike and Ocala Drive, and a Dodge Nitro SUV attempted to make a left turn, smashing into the victim’s vehicle, according to WKRN-TV.

The station reported that the driver of the SUV was charged with driving without a license. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
