In our past couple of posts, we discussed semitruck accidents and how serious they can be. In some cases, these accidents can be fatal. If your loved one died in a big rig crash, you might decide that you are going to seek compensation for that death.
Wrongful death claims are serious matters because if you win your case and are awarded compensation, you might be able to carry on your loved one's memory. You might also be able to get the money that your loved one would have earned if the 18-wheeler hadn't have caused the fatal accident.
We understand that you need time to grieve after a car crash. You need time to refocus and determine what is going to happen now that your loved one isn't here any longer. This can be a very traumatic time, especially since the accident was unexpected.
As you work on your case, you will need to determine the cause of the accident. We can help you to do this so that you know who you are going to seek compensation from. This could be the trucking company or the trucker. You might even be able to turn to the insurance company.
You will also need do determine which types of damages you suffered because of your loved one's death. We can help you to determine this and come up with amounts that you are going to claim so that you can get your case moving forward. Oklahoma has time limits for these cases, so we can't wait too long before we file your claim.
