Wrongful Death Lawsuit against Truck Driver and Trucking Company

If your loved one has been in a fatal accident with a semi truck, your family is undoubtedly suffering both emotionally and financially. Even though you may not be ready to deal with the legal issues arising from the accident, the trucking company and insurance companies may have already contacted you.

Settlement vs. Verdict

I highly recommend that you not sign away your rights before contacting a trucking accident attorney with wrongful death lawsuit experience. I understand that you and your family are grieving and that closure of the situation may hold some appeal, but my experience is that families will ultimately find more comfort by having a trucking attorney help them achieve some measure of justice, holding the trucking company accountable, while at the same time helping obtain financial compensation for the family. The truck driver and trucking company took away a precious life, and there need to be consequences for their actions.

If you hire me to represent your family, I will do an independent investigation of the accident, hire accident reconstruction experts and take all of the steps necessary to build a winning case. In the end, the result may be a settlement, but only if the amount is enough that you feel justice has been done and you have been fairly compensated.

Some cases are not settled until just prior to the trial or sometimes even during the trial. Others are not settled before the entire case is tried before a judge and jury. Money awarded to your family by a judge or jury after the close of the trial is called a verdict.

The timeframe in which all of this happens varies depending on the facts of the case and the legal issues involved. It will not cost you anything to call me for a free consultation at 1-888-377-8900.
