Deaths are More than just Statistics
Thousands of crashes happen across the nation every day. Reading the stories of the injured day after day can numb you after a while. It can turn tragic stories into statistics. Consider this following small story that was published recently.
A pedestrian was struck and killed in front of Deady Middle School at Broadway and Scanlock in the evening. A METRO stop was shut down while the police cleaned up the wreck. No information was released regarding why the crash happened.
From the perspective of the newsroom, that may be all that is needed. But to the family affected by the accident, they want more information. What happened and why did it happen? Was it the fault of the pedestrian or the driver? Did someone break the law, and will insurance cover the costs of final expenses? And those are just the practical questions. The pain and suffering from losing a loved one in a quick accident can be too great to describe.
The civil court system is meant to help people receive financial compensation for wrongs done to them. While no amount of money can bring back a loved one, it can cushion the financial shocks of final expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. It can also punish those who act egregiously by levying financial penalties on the responsible party.
