Justice For Fatal Delivery Vehicle Accidents

Attorney contributor Kristen Beightol works as a commercial vehicle accident lawyer helping victims seek justice throughout North Carolina. During a recent interview, she discussed how the surviving family members of victims killed in an accident could file a lawsuit for compensation.

"Delivery drivers are often in the position of working many hours with little sleep. Poor maintenance and overloading of trucks can cause a very dangerous situation on the road. During a traffic collision, this kind of carelessness can lead to death. Some of the top causes of accidents are distracted driving, driving while fatigued, and failing to adhere to traffic laws. Along with the drivers of commercial vehicles, the company they work for could also be liable for an accident. All trucking companies are responsible for doing thorough background checks on all of their drivers, making sure their drivers aren't over-scheduled, and ensuring their drivers are properly trained."

"A commercial accident attorney can help victims, and their surviving family members identify all responsible parties. They can help them file a claim against them to recover compensation for damages the accident caused."
