Fatal Truck and Car Accidents

When someone is killed in a truck crash, trucking companies and their insurers waste no time in getting a team of people to the scene to accomplish one very simple goal: minimizing or avoiding liability for the accident. We act quickly to investigate these accidents so that crucial pieces of evidence indicating driver error or truck company negligence can be preserved. At the same time, we know that conducting an investigation and taking legal action is not enough. What else is required? In any wrongful death case, it is critical for truckers and their insurers — and if necessary, judges and juries — to realize who the victim was while they were alive and how their loss has affected their families and loved ones.

Fatal accidents are an all too common occurrence along I-71, I-75, I-675; state highways 4, 35, 40, 41, 42, 68, 72, 201, 202, and 235 and on numerous county roads and city streets. For families of the victims, a car accident fatality is a devastating event. When negligence is the cause, a sense of injustice can make matters worse. People who have lost a loved one in a fatal car crash are often overwhelmed by grief and unsure how to approach the many legal issues that arise. An experienced fatal accident lawyer will handle the investigation, ensure medical expenses prior to death are covered, deal with insurance companies, and take care of the many other concerns while you focus on more personal matters.

From fatal car accidents with semi trucks to collisions involving motorcycles, buses, trains, snowplows or other deadly auto accidents, we have helped clients obtain favorable results in hundreds of fatality claims. We quickly go to work gathering evidence, analyzing the details, and structuring a proven strategy to help people collect fair compensation to cover:

  • Medical bills for treatment before death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost earnings today and tomorrow
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional care and support
