Fatal motor vehicle accidents cause emotional and physical trauma

Even the most cautious of people probably don't think too much about the risks involved in simply driving a car. Unfortunately, the risks are real, and they are compounded by motorists who insist on driving distracted, impaired or otherwise dangerously. Fatal motor vehicle accidents, in particular, are terrible occurrences that leave the living to try and carry on without the ones they love.

An Ontario family consisting of a husband, his mother, his wife and the couple's infant son were returning home from a day's excursion to Niagara Falls on Nov. 27. A 26-year-old man struck the family's vehicle with his own vehicle on Highway 7 just west of Kitchener that evening. Though the man and his mother escaped with minor injuries, his wife was killed in the accident, and the baby was air-lifted to the Hospital For Sick Children for surgery on life-threatening injuries. The other driver was arrested and now faces eight charges, among them impaired driving causing death.

A witness at the hospital reported seeing the man break down in grief at the hospital. A cousin of the deceased woman reports he has not been sleeping as he maintains a vigil at his son's bedside. She hopes that her cousin's death will serve as a reminder of the dangers of impaired driving.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents are irreversible tragedies. However difficult it may be, though, life does continue for the family of the deceased. This means having to deal with insurance companies looking to settle as soon as possible. Using the services of an Ontario personal injury law firm can free one of the burden of such tasks at the worst conceivable time, and may be the way toward acceptable financial compensation.
