Wrongful Death Claims for Commercial Vehicle Accidents in Tampa
The road can be a dangerous place. Accidents occur every day and the results can be devastating. This is especially true when the accident involves a commercial vehicle. Due to their enormous size (up to 80,000 pounds), commercial vehicles are more difficult to handle, require special training to operate, and cause major injury in an accident. That’s why truck drivers must be especially careful behind the wheel.
A Wrongful Death Claim Can Help You Get the Compensation You Need
If you have lost a family member in a commercial vehicle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to file a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver or company. A successful claim can get you the compensation you deserve for the loss of your loved one. While no amount of money could ever replace or make up for the loss of your loved one, you can get the compensation you need to help recover the cost of medical bills, funeral expenses and loss of wages. You may also get compensation for the pain and suffering you and your family have endured.
Don’t Wait to File a Wrongful Death Claim After a Commercial Vehicle Accident in Tampa
During your time of grief you may be busy handling necessary arrangements for your loved one, and contacting an attorney may be the last thing on your mind. However, because of the statute of limitations (the limited period of time you have to file a claim) it’s important to speak with a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will review the facts of the commercial vehicle accident, obtain necessary information for your claim, and advise you on gathering evidence. Evidence can quickly disappear forever, which makes seeking a wrongful death attorney even more urgent. Your attorney will walk you through the entire process, answer your questions, and most importantly, help you and your family obtain justice.
