The death of writer Albert Camus has raised many controversial theories that wrongful death lawyers have witnessed for years. Some believe that his death was an accident, while others claim that Camus got killed. The French Philosopher and author of books such as “The Stranger” became famous for his works around revolt, freedom, and justice. Fortunately, experienced wrongful death lawyers at Robert J. DeBry & Associates will help you understand wrongful death lawsuits.
The Day Albert Camus Died
Camus was traveling to Paris with his friend, Michael Gallimard, when he died in a tragic road accident. They were in the company of Gallimard’s daughter and wife. Their journey from Provence, France, halted in Villeblevin, a town 65 miles from Paris. Gallimard lost control of the Facel Vega and veered off the road into a tree. The fatal accident that destroyed the car killed Camus. However, Anne, Janine, and Gallimard survived. Camus’s original plan was to accompany his family to Paris by train before Gallimard convinced him to join him in the Facel Vega.
Unfortunately, a police report on the accident could not indicate the exact cause of the accident. The police noted that the prevailing road conditions were favorable. For instance, Gallimard was driving on a straight road. The pavement was clear of ice. Besides, Gallimard was operating within an acceptable speed, eliminating negligence in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Conspiracies Around Albert Camus’s Death
Conspiracy theories emerged years after Camus’s death. Camus’s work often includes topics around revolt and justice. The Nobel Prize playwright journalist championed the rights of the disempowered and disenfranchised people in society. Rebellion against injustice remained a pillar of his philosophy. Camus wielded his pen against Nazi Germany’s atrocities and dictatorship in Spain, especially the Hiroshima nuclear bombing and topics such as the horror of the Soviet gulags. An Italian Newspaper alleged that KGB was responsible for his death, a claim that most Biographers and scholars have denounced over the years.
