Car accidents are rarely ever “accidents.” In many cases, a distracted, impaired, careless or reckless driver is to blame. When you lose a loved one due to somebody else’s negligent, criminal or reckless behavior, it may be necessary to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
The skilled team at the Altman Legal Group has helped families across Texoma recover compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and the loss of love and companionship that goes along with losing a loved one. Although, no dollar amount can bring back your loved one, being fairly compensated for the financial and emotional impacts of the loss is absolutely essential.
Fatal Crashes Involving Semi Trucks
If you have lost a loved one in a crash involving a commercial trucking vehicle, there are a few things you should know. The commercial trucking industry is heavily regulated to ensure roadway safety of all motorists. That doesn’t mean that drivers and trucking companies are always adhering to those regulations though.
It’s important to make sure a crash involving a semi truck is thoroughly investigated. If truck drivers and trucking companies don’t follow the rules, people can get hurt or killed. Since the federal government has enacted so many specialized laws to regulate the safety of commercial trucking, it’s important to speak with an attorney who has experience with commercial truck accident litigation. Commercial trucking companies and insurance carriers often have attorneys on retainer, so you should too.
After a Fatal Car Accident
If you have lost a loved one in a car or truck accident, you need to speak with an experienced wrongful death attorney. Surviving family members are often facing extensive medical bills, funeral expenses and lost wages. The last thing you need to worry about is how you’re going to pay for everything. Let a professional handle the details, while you grieve and tend to your family. An attorney can stay on top of official investigations, deal with insurance companies and help to determine if negligent, criminal or reckless behavior was to blame for the fatal crash.
