In the past two blog posts, we discussed some points about semitruck accidents. If you recall, we discussed how serious these accidents can be. In some cases, they are deadly. If you lost a loved one in a big rig crash, you might opt to seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
We know that you need time to mourn the loss of your loved one. If you are going to seek compensation, we should get started on your case quickly. We want you to know that we understand that your emotions are raw right now. We will respect your feelings while helping you get your case moving forward. We will do the footwork so that you can try to work through the grieving process.
Wrongful death cases are difficult case for everyone involved because there is nothing that is going to bring a lost loved one back. The goals of these cases are often to minimize the monetary damages that you face because of the loss and to hold the liable parties accountable for the death. This is enough to bring some families a small measure of closure.
If you want to pursue a wrongful death claim, you should understand the process so that you know what to expect. Ideally, we will get started on your case soon after the accident while any witnesses will still have a vivid memory of what happened and while evidence is still fresh. Even if that isn't possible, we can still help you get your case moving as long as the statute of limitations hasn't passed.
