Claims for Damages in Commercial Truck Accidents
Individuals get injured in Fresno County and across California in a wide array of ways. Any preventable incident or accident that causes bodily injury to another party may form the basis for a bodily injury claim. In the context of a traffic collision, a personal injury claim may be filed against the driver responsible for the crash to seek economic and non-economic damages incurred. These refer to the financial losses and intangible harm an involved party has endured because of injuries sustained in a car wreck. These may include pain and suffering, medical bills, lost earnings, and other losses.
For families who have been deprived of a loved one due to a big rig crash caused by a negligent truck driver or trucking company, they may have grounds for a wrongful death action against the other side for the resulting damages. Survivors may hold at-fault parties liable for their losses, including medical bills (recovered through a survival action), funeral costs, loss of financial support, loss of benefits, and other associated damages. Personal injury and wrongful death cases are usually subject to a two-year filing deadline. Exceptions may apply. Therefore, it is essential that claimants retain legal counsel right away.
What are the Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer for a Big Rig Crash Case?
The benefits of retaining legal counsel after a commercial truck accident greatly outweigh the cons. An attorney can help injured parties and families of decedents by conducting independent investigations, handling communications with insurers and defense counsel, negotiating with the other side, and taking the matter to court if a mutual settlement agreement is not reached.
