No one expects that they or their loved one will be in a serious accident on any given day. No matter how hard we try to avoid these accidents, sometimes they just occur. A fatal auto-pedestrian accident recently occurred in Cleveland that resulted in the death of a man in a wheelchair.
Recently, a fatal accident occurred near the intersection of Fulton Road and Walton Avenue in Cleveland. A car was pulling into the intersection when it hit a Jeep Wrangler. The impact caused the Jeep to spin where it hit a man who was in a motorized wheelchair. The man was taken to MetroHealth where he later died. Charges are pending on an investigation being completed of the accident.
The unexpected death of a loved one is a situation which no one wants to face. These are challenging times for a family who is now faced with unexpected expenses and dealing with the emotional trauma of their grief. If a family finds themselves in this situation they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review police reports, and get answers for the family as to what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical and funeral expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
No family should have to bury their loved one unexpectedly. If their death was caused by negligence, an attorney can help hold the party responsible for their mistake.
