Can Parents Sue If A Child Is Injured In A Truck Accident?

Reed Martens, a truck accident attorney, has commented on the legal action that could be taken if a child is seriously injured in a truck accident:

"As a father, I understand how horrible it feels to see your child in pain. Parents will do anything to help their children, including putting themselves in serious debt paying for injuries that were caused due to the negligence of another party.

However, financial relief can be obtained.

A truck accident lawsuit can provide full compensation for all of your child's medical bills, your lost wages, and even non-monetary losses such as physical trauma and emotional suffering. But proving negligence can be very difficult without the help of an experienced attorney.

An attorney can ensure that evidence, such as the black box that is often on semi-trucks, is preserved. Additionally, they can handle the legal paperwork, speak with insurance companies on your behalf, and find industry experts who can testify on your behalf in court. This lets your family focus on what is most important - taking care of your injured child. "
