After a fatal truck accident takes the life of your loved one, a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind. You may need time off from work or school or suddenly be overwhelmed by estate paperwork or planning a memorial service. Our attorneys can take a lot of stress off your shoulders, giving you the time you need to grieve while making sure your loved one’s rights are respected.
How We Can Help After a Fatal Truck Wreck
At our wrongful death law firm, we aren’t being tactless when we ask you to contact us quickly after an accident; we’re trying to protect you when you can’t protect yourself. Your time to take legal action is extremely limited, and by waiting, you run the risk of losing a game you didn’t know you were playing.
Our services give you distance from confusing and distressing legal details, including:
- Identifying the at-fault party. It will take an in-depth investigation of the wreck to discover whose negligence led to your loss. Family members may be understandably angry at the person, persons, or company that is legally responsible. We can help you channel that emotion into your case, getting closure for your loved one’s death by holding the right person responsible.
- Determining the cause of death. A sudden death is already a painful experience, and having a lawyer investigate the accident may spare families the details they would rather not know.
- Dealing with an insurer or trucking company. Commercial carriers have been on the receiving end of countless truck accident lawsuits, and they know exactly how to respond when these accidents turn fatal. We can prevent companies and their insurers from manipulating you into settling for less than you deserve.
- Financial matters. The death of a spouse or parent may cause a significant loss of household income, making it difficult to plan your family’s financial future. We can explain the types of damages you may recover for medical costs incurred prior to death, funeral expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering.
