An ordinary March day turned into one that will not be soon forgotten by the Jones family, their church, and the community. The death of a child from a Florida automobil accident is a tragedy that is hard to comprehend and one that will affect a parent for a lifetime.
When a child dies a result of an accident, there is no term to describe such an event. For instance, when a wife loses her husband – the wife then becomes a widow. When a child loses a parent, the child may then become an orphan. However, there is no such like term when a parent loses a child. One could say it is because the pain and grief from such an event does not equate or equal any term in the English language.
A parent who loses a child to a wrongful death incident and accident will and should seek comfort and support from the family, neighborhood, friends, church, and community. Oftent times, a parent will need and seek legal representation from a Florida Personal Injury Lawyer to get advice as to the rights to compensation and damages for the wrongful death of the child.
