How Can a Wrongful Death Claim Help Our Family?

The loss of a close relative in a commercial truck accident is much more than financial hardship. Each family member may experience intangible losses, such as loss of protection and care. However, insurance companies and defense counsel do not always consider these when handling a claim against their insured. That is why it is important to retain legal counsel to protect your family’s best interests and future.

A truck accident lawyer from our law firm will do everything in our power to determine our client’s losses, including interviewing surviving family members, collecting documentation of resulting losses, and working with expert witnesses to calculate economic and non-economic damages.

Evidence is key when it comes to building a strong wrongful death claim for maximum financial compensation. Bear in mind that evidence may be lost or destroyed over time. Therefore, it is crucial to work with an experienced attorney right away who can send letters of preservation of evidence to the other side on your behalf before it is too late.

Who is Responsible for a Fatal Commercial Truck Accident?
