A fatal accident can claim the life of a loved one on any day and at any moment in time. This is a reality that every Birmingham resident must face. While there is nothing that can be done to bring back a loved one lost in such a tragic event, in certain circumstances, legal avenues may be used to seek restitution and hold responsible parties liable for the loss in civil court.
