Mike Pfau, contributor here at Legal Herald and an experienced tractor trailer accident attorney, shared the following comments for the families of victims who lost their lives in trucking accidents:

“When the negligence of others claims the life of a loved one, it’s normal for the family to seek and fight for justice on the victim’s behalf. By pursuing a truck or tractor-trailer accident, the grieving family can not only feel that justice has been served, but they can also achieve a full compensation for monetary and non-monetary damages such as:

  • Emotional and physical trauma
  • Suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of income
  • Medical costs
  • Burial and funeral expenses

The spouse, parents and even children of the victim who was killed are the individuals eligible to seek compensation via a tractor-trailer accident lawsuit. In some cases, though, others who were dependent of the deceased can also follow the same path.

Those affected by a truck accident should not wait to contact an attorney who has experience handling truck accident claims. They should also understand that a civil lawsuit is separate from criminal proceedings, and does not depend on charges being filed by authorities to move forward successfully.”
