Attorney Bobby Thompson has shared the following insight on the legal rights of victims injured in tractor-trailer accidents:
“Most people can understand how devastating the death of a loved one can be, especially when it occurs at the hands of a negligent driver. While criminal charges may be filed by authorities, these legal proceedings will only help a grieving family know that those responsible have been punished for their misgivings.
Unfortunately, it cannot help them with financial pressures in a household, but a truck or tractor-trailer accident lawsuit can.
If a truck accident lawsuit is pursued and won, it can help pay for damages such as:
- Funeral and burial proceedings
- Loss of income
- Emotional pain and suffering
While this process can’t bring a loved one back or undo the tragic circumstances, it can help provide those left behind with the support they need.
Consulting an attorney as soon as possible after a truck accident is quite critical, as an experienced legal team can chase down and preserve valuable evidence that can bolster a plaintiff’s claim.”
