Even though most Americans over the last decade have died due to chronic illness, over 2,000 adults die every year in accidents in Oregon alone. In this trilogy, we are going to talk about what to do if a loved one dies in an accident.
The "Accidental Death" trilogy is focused on what happens when someone dies unattended. In this episode, Brian covers the process that happens if there is an unattended death from time of death to meeting with a funeral director. This generally means that the death happened in an accident, at the home with no one present or outside of the home such as at a workplace. This is the first in a three part series talking about types of accidental deaths, autopsy, and planning a funeral after the unexpected sudden death.
