Truck accidents are frequently more serious even if they are less common than car accidents. Basic physics dictates that they will result in more serious injuries than regular motor accidents. For instance, a collision between two standard automobiles will almost always cause more damage than one between an 80,000-pound truck and a 3,000-pound car. In 2017, there were more than 450,000 incidences of large vehicle accidents.

Losing a loved one as a result of another person’s negligence can be terrible. Accident victims typically experience the financial and psychological effects of their misfortune. Thank goodness, persons who have experienced such a tragedy may file a wrongful death claim to receive monetary compensation.

When a family member dies, the remaining family members lose many things, including the love and support that the deceased member provided. The family has the choice to make a wrongful death claim in order to be compensated for the suffering that their loved one’s passing caused them.
