Dorchester, SC - Driver Killed in Crash with Dump Truck on Zion Rd

In 2018, there were 106,821 accidents in the US involving commercial transportation vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Administration. Nearly 4,500 of the collisions resulted in fatalities. Due to the size and weight of these vehicles, any sort of negligent, reckless, or reckless driving may result in catastrophic and tragic consequences.

Everyone will inevitably find it difficult to cope with the loss of a family member or close friend. No matter how they died, whether they were victims of a tragic accident, an otherwise regular medical procedure that went wrong, or even as a direct result of someone’s malign purpose, the agony of losing someone you care about is devastating. Additionally, you might accept that the person who went away was a victim of a senseless death.

If someone passes away as a result of someone else’s carelessness, a wrongful death claim may be filed. Even while many other things might potentially result in death, this kind of claim has certain unique problems. After losing a loved one as a consequence of another person’s carelessness, it can be difficult to find your way toward healing. While receiving the money you’re entitled to won’t be able to bring your loved one back to you, it will provide you and your family more confidence as you navigate the future and give you the willpower to continue.
