What Happens if the At-Fault Driver Dies in the Accident

You were involved in a fatal car crash. Fortunately for you, you survived. The other driver who crashed into you, however, died from catastrophic injuries. Your initial reaction may be one of sadness or remorse, but then you have no choice but to turn your attention to yourself and your own injuries. If the at-fault party has passed, who is going to pay for your medical expenses, loss of wages, and accruing out of pocket expenses? Plus who will be responsible for your emotional and mental trauma resulting from the remnants of the collision?
