When a family members dies, even if it was expected because of an illness, the effect on the family members can be devastating. Just think how much worse that must be if someone is suddenly killed in an accident that was not their fault, and how bad it must be to know that the death was caused by someone else being reckless or negligent, and that it could have been avoided.

We all know that know amount of money will bring them back or make the grieving process any easier, but it can give some financial stability and, particularly if young children have been left, that could be very important.
