A contributor to Legal Herald and experienced attorney at BanvilleLaw.com, Laurence Banville shared the following comments for individuals who have felt the effects that a truck crash can have on a victim and their family:

“When a person is involved in a crash with a truck, they’re not the only ones who suffer. In fact, all of their family is often shook up by the trauma that these accidents can bring. As one can imagine, this trauma is significantly worse when the victim of the accident does not survive.

Unfortunately, there’s a dark side to these situations which many people are not familiar with. It’s true that the emotional distress can be unbearable, but it’s made significantly more intense when expenses start to pile up.

A grieving family can be hit with medical expenses, funeral bills and burial costs, along with the loss of the income that the deceased provided. The average American family simply does not have the resources to handle all of this.

Luckily, there is a legal path that they can take to relieve this overwhelming pressure. By filing a truck accident lawsuit, whether after an injury or death, the family of the victim can receive a compensation that can ease their struggle.

The amount of money that can be awarded via a case or settlement depends on the specific circumstances. For this reason, victims should consult their situation with an experienced truck accident attorney who will be able to analyze their case and break down all the legal options on the table.”
