We do not have much information on the accident, but unfortunately my husband's uncle was the passenger and died. We're not sure what happened to the driver of the truck, but he knew he was in critical condition at a hospital nearby. He left behind his wife and 5 children, the youngest of children have physical and mental disabilities and requires a lot of expensive medical care . I wanted to see if someone could tell me if your family would be able to toreceivee any payment out of the car insurance company . Idon'tt know if this would beconsiderede a wrongful death , but we're pretty sure that the driver and truck owner was drunk. Please someone help answer my question. This was a tragic loss for my family of her husband , and would like help as we can. Furthermore, the accidenthappenedd here in the U.S. , But his family lives in Mexico. I really do not know what to do , that's why we're trying to help, but not sure were to begin , or whether we evenpursuee this. Thank you.

First, obtain a copy of the accident report from the local police. Next, get a copy of the uncle's death certificate. Finally, contact the insurance adjuster of the driver who was considered at fault.

Now comes the hard part. Was the uncle here legally? Was the driver his boss? Should this matter? It might, since insurance companies don't like giving away money. Below is a website that will put you in touch with the Mexican Consulate for better answers.
