Central Michigan University midfielder Josie Seebeck died of her injuries three days after a car accident earlier this month reported the Los Angeles Times. While Seebeck's family and teammates struggle with the loss, victim advocate and attorney Thomas Stroble says legal concerns may also occur from the incident.

Seebeck had completed her first year with the women's soccer team, and was out with two friends and fellow player when their car crashed, according to the Los Angeles Times article "Central Michigan soccer player dies after car accident" (08.06.2013). The vehicle rolled over, hospitalizing all three. While Seebeck passed away, the others survived.

Stroble is the founder of Stroble Law and focuses his work on protecting the victims of car accidents and their families. He says that the law provides compensation for the families of those killed in car accidents – but that they may have to take legal action to get it.

“The purpose of legal compensation is to help families pay for medical bills, damages and final costs,” Stroble said. “Unfortunately, insurance companies aren't always forthcoming with fair compensation unless you fight for it.”

Police have released very few details.

Stroble advises that anyone involved in an accident should speak to an attorney immediately.
