In terms of the size of the large trucks, it makes sense that only 2% of the individuals in the trucks die. The truck provides enormous protection in comparison to a relatively tiny car, which may weigh 3,000 or 4,000 lbs. The truck may weigh up to 80,000 lbs. when it is fully loaded. If a loved one lost their life in a truck accident that was the fault of the truck driver, or if faulty equipment was to blame, or if there is another appropriate reason to claim negligence, the rightful heirs may seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Every case is different, depending on the facts involved. However, a wrongful death claim may include the following:
There are no upfront legal fees and no legal fees at all for wrongful death cases unless we settle or win your case. If your loved one lost their life due to the negligence or malfeasance of a truck driver or other party, we believe they should be held accountable for their conduct. One reason for the wrongful death claim is that it provides support for those persons who were dependent on the deceased victim.
