Losing a loved one is emotionally trying, but when it turns out the loss was caused by someone else’s negligence, it is even more difficult to come to terms with. When the fatality is caused by a truck driver’s negligence, however, there are a number of other factors that come into play of which ordinary Ohio residents may not be aware.
The trucking industry is governed by numerous of regulations-from the size of the truck and the weight it can transport to the hours a driver is supposed to be on the road-federal and state laws cover all of this extensively. However, as mentioned on this blog previously, truckers are under immense pressure to drive faster and longer than ever before, causing truck driver fatigue, distractions and drowsiness. This can increase the instances of crashes and especially fatal car accidents.
Losing a family member brings with it many financial and emotional difficulties and lawyers at our firm can help alleviate the financial pressure so families can focus on coming to terms with their loss. We understand how the insurance system works-they are inundated by hundreds of claims but we can help ensure that our client’s claim stays at the forefront. We do this by developing a number of arguments that demonstrate the extent of the loss a family suffers-we understand that a family will never be the same and we show this to the insurance companies to ensure that family members can receive the most compensation possible for their wrongful death claim.
We have many years of experience dealing with wrongful death claims and we put this experience to use for our clients. For more, visit us on our website.
