Any time someone is killed as the result fatal car accident, it is a tragedy. When that person is killed because of someone else’s criminal act while trying to help others, it is a tragedy that would even shock New York City wrongful death lawyers. This was the case for one unfortunate ambulance attendant near New York City. A police chase occurred that resulted in multiple accidents. An ambulance tried to get out of the way, but was struck and flipped over as it turned into an intersection. A witness said that a man flew out of the back of the ambulance. A man was found trapped under the ambulance after it came to rest. A 30-year-old ambulance attendant died at the hospital. Three others were also injured but their condition was not available. When an accident like this occurs, there are many people who experience a profound loss, but none more so than the direct family of the deceased. After experiencing this loss, they may also be experiencing a large financial burden, either from medical bills, funeral bills or even lost wages from the loss of the family member. Surviving family members of the victim of a fatal accident may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death suit seeking compensation for financial losses in addition to other potential damages, such as pain and suffering or loss of consortium. Getting over the loss of a loved one is never easy. Seeking help as soon as possible from an experienced wrongful death attorney can help ease some of the burden of loss.
