How Can Parents Protect Children Who Have Been Injured In A Truck Accident?

Laurence Banville of Banville Law isn't just an experienced truck accident lawyer. He is also a father and understands the panic that a parent feels when their child has been hurt in an accident. He has offered his thoughts on the legal options available to parents after a child has been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck.

"We want to protect our kids but we can't control the actions of other people. When your child has been seriously injured in a tractor-trailer accident you likely have the right to take legal action against the person or group whose negligence caused the accident.

Negligence under the law means that someone hasn't acted in a "reasonable" manner in order to protect others around them. For example, if a trucking company fails to have new brakes installed or serviced on a truck in order to save money and the old brakes fail, the company could be seen as negligent.

A truck accident lawsuit can provide the compensation that a family needs to ensure that their child gets the best medical care possible. But in order to prove that negligence occurred and that the maximum amount is received, significant evidence is required. Collecting this evidence can be difficult as negligent parties typically do everything possible to make that evidence disappear.

By contacting an attorney as quickly as possible, evidence can be preserved. If your child has been hurt, don't want to contact a law firm."
