Wrongful Death Claims Against Trucking Companies
California has the second-most reported fatal truck crashes of any state, second only to Texas. If you lost a close family member due to an accident involving a truck driver, you may have a claim for wrongful death against the driver and the company that employed them.
Truck driving accidents are serious and can often lead to serious injury or death to those involved. When someone dies in a trucking accident, the law allows close family members to bring a wrongful death suit on their behalf. This wrongful death suit will, if successful, entitle the loved ones to compensation for the loss of the person’s life measured over a variety of ways.
Compensation can include pain and suffering, lost income, and other losses associated with the lost life and its impact on those loved ones that survive the deceased. Such lawsuits are generally directed at the trucking companies that employed the truck driver responsible for the accident, as they can be liable for the negligent conduct of their employees.
Such claims are often settled out of court, but will sometimes go to trial. Insurance companies often try to make low offers to grieving families, so you want a truck accident attorney on your side who will successfully represent your case and obtain a financial settlement reflective of the value of your losses.
