The driver and passenger needed to be extricated from the vehicle. Tragically, the Glenolden driver was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Fatal accidents and wrongful death

While fatal accidents can’t be undone and families can never truly be “compensated’, families of loved ones lost due to someone’s negligence can seek some justice through the law. Families of loved ones lost in fatal accidents can get some closure from a wrongful death case. A successful wrongful death case can bring compensation for lost income, lost companionship and guidance, medical, funeral and burial expenses.
