Head on Collisions – Fatal Truck Accidents Lawyer
Dozens of truck accident fatalities occur every day in the U.S., close to 4,000 per year. When a head-on collision occurs with a large truck weighing up to 80,000 pounds, there is a high chance of a fatality. The heartbreak for the family of a truck accident fatality victim is immeasurable, and there is no money that can replace their loss. When a head-on truck accident fatality is caused by negligence, the victim’s family is due restitution for their loss.
When a head-on collision occurs with a large commercial truck, collateral damage is bound to occur. Even at slow speeds, a head-on collision with a semi-trailer truck and a passenger car could result in complete destruction of the smaller vehicle. At best, occupants of the vehicle will sustain injuries; at worst, lives will be lost. If the accident is caused by negligence on the part of the truck driver or their employer, it may require a lawsuit to bring them to justice for the victims and their families.
Wrongful Death Truck Accident Lawsuits
If negligence is the cause of a head-on truck fatality accident, seeking restitution is possible through a wrongful death lawsuit. These types of cases are very complex and difficult to endure. However, they can help bring justice to the family and relieve financial concerns. If a head-on truck collision is the cause of a wrongful death, the negligent parties may be required to pay compensation for:
- Medical and funeral costs of the victim
- Lost future income
- Restitution for pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship/life enjoyment
