Fatal Car Accident on I-95 Claims Life

A fatal car accident involved an Ellicott City woman who was riding as a passenger in a car on I-95 when it turned left, causing the motor vehicle to be perpendicular on the roadway, reported The Baltimore Sun. The car was then struck by another motor vehicle, which resulted in the passenger being ejected. She was taken to a local hospital and, tragically, pronounced dead.

Passenger’s Claims in Fatal Car Accident Cases

Just because a passenger was riding in a car with a driver who was at fault does not mean that the passenger, or the passenger’s family, may not still have a claim. If the driver was at fault in causing the fatal car accident, then the passengers may be able to recover. If your loved one died in a fatal car accident, you may have a claim for the funeral expenses; medical bills; lost income; and the grief from losing the person you loved who was the victim of a fatal car accident.
