Losing someone due to the carelessness of another is an incredibly tragic loss that is often times entirely preventable. While understanding how and why your loved one is gone may not be prioritized immediately after an incident, it is critical given the loss of life to set in motion a team of investigators and attorneys to answer these hard questions, protect the survivors interests at the outset, and provide advice to the family. Evidence of how the incident occurred often disappears quickly after an incident resulting in death and a thorough and complete investigation is necessary.
