Anjali Nigam: Absolutely. In cases like this, where lives have been lost due to a truck accident, victims and their surviving families have the right to pursue a civil case against the liable parties.

Anjali Nigam: Truck accident cases can be complex due to various factors, including multiple parties involved, intricate insurance policies, and adherence to federal and state regulations. It's important for victims and their families to understand that trucking companies often have teams of lawyers and insurance adjusters working to protect their interests. That's why having a skilled attorney on their side becomes crucial to level the playing field and ensure fair compensation.

Darla Medina: What advice do you have for our viewers who may find themselves in a similar situation?

Anjali Nigam: My advice is to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Time is of the essence when it comes to gathering evidence and building a strong case.
