A one-year-old boy was killed in an upstate New York agricultural accident on Thursday, March 25. According to New York State Police, one-year-old Benjamin Miller was fatally hit after approaching a skid steer that his father was using to tow a hay wagon.
The accident happened in the town of Burke, Franklin County, along the Canadian border. The boy was taken to a hospital in Malone, where the doctors pronounced him dead.
When such tragedies happen, the last thing a family can think of is legal matters. However, they should contact an attorney who has experience with such accidents and seek justice.
A personal injury attorney will review the case and explain what should be done. The family can file for a compensation claim that will cover the medical bills for the victim (if they were staying in a hospital), funeral and burial fees and other expenses.
Such cases are never easy since the family is in great pain, but some things have to be done.
If you have lost a loved one in a car accident or because of a personal injury caused by another party (due to negligence or mal intention) don’t wait for time to pass by. It’s important to hire a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so they can start doing their job.
In such cases, the attorney is the one who will take care of the legal matters and advise the mourning family what to do next. The compensation claim might not bring back the lost life, but will surely help you to continue with your life.
