Orangeburg, SC - One Killed, Two Hurt in Crash with Tractor-Trailer on Five Chop Rd

Due to the size and weight of 18-wheelers, accidents with them frequently result in more serious injuries. Collisions involving careless semi-truck drivers or transportation businesses happen much too frequently and endanger innocent people. Hundreds of thousands of trucking accidents are reported annually in the United States. 

A claim for wrongful death is a type of legal action that can be brought by the surviving family members or loved ones of a person who passed away as a result of the carelessness or wrongdoing of another individual. In these kinds of circumstances, the court would usually let the deceased person’s loved ones, who are also referred to as distributors, file legal claims for compensation, particularly if they were reliant on the deceased person for basic necessities like food and water.

It is never simple to deal with a loved one’s abrupt and unexpected death. In any case, it might be difficult to grieve this loss. Even yet, there are still occasions when it is incredibly distressing, especially when the death was preventable. This usually leaves family members in deeper and more profound suffering.
