Woman killed in West Virginia pedestrian accident

A woman was killed Thursday night in a potential wrongful death accident. The woman was pulling a wagon with her two children in it when she was hit by a pickup truck. According to reports on the accident the two children were not hurt in the accident, but the woman did not survive.

Law enforcement officials are continuing to investigate the accident, and have not said if charges will be filed against the driver. Depending on exactly what investigators find in their reconstruction of the accident, the person in the pickup truck might not face charges. Even if no criminal charges are filed, a family in a similar situation might still decided to explore their legal options.

Sometimes when a loved one is lost, the family has a hard time both emotionally and financially. They might not know how they will continue on, especially if the family has young children. If the person that died has a spouse, they might be wise to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in West Virginia. If the victim had children, but those children are placed with family members, the other family members might also be able to take legal action.

While filing a wrongful death lawsuit might not be able to undo an accident, it can help the family move forward. Some families will find this as a way to seek justice for their loved one, and might also be needing compensation to pay for everyday expenses if the person who died was a major source of income for a family.
