In a semi-truck accident, it’s rarely the truck driver who suffers any injury. The other vehicles, however, often suffer severe damage, and both passengers and drivers can be killed. If you’ve lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and expenses. The experienced attorneys at Hinkle Law Offices, P.C. may be able to help you collect.
Semi-Truck Accidents Are Often Fatal
In 2014, there were nearly 4,000 people killed in crashes involving large trucks, and nearly 75% of those fatalities were individuals in the other cars. When a smaller vehicle is involved in an accident, it’s almost always the smaller vehicle that suffers the most damage, including more injuries and a greater chance of a fatality.
The average cost of a funeral in the United States is between $7,000 and $10,000—money that comes out of your pocket because of someone else’s negligence. Not only are you dealing with the grief of losing a loved one, but you have to balance the additional stress of the financial burden that follows.
