Steps To Take After an Accident Involving a Truck
A roadway accident can be a harrowing experience. Victims are often left terrified and bewildered as to what they need to do in order to protect their rights. Below our expert legal team has delineated a set of steps that should be followed immediately after an accident.
Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents
Truck accidents result in a substantially increased probability of harm for victims because of the large weight and size disparity between trucks and other motorized vehicles on the road. Some of the most common injuries resulting from truck accidents include the following:
Statute of Limitations – Timing Deadline for Filing a Lawsuit
In the state of California victims of personal injury have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in the court of law. If they fail to file a lawsuit within that time the victim will have relinquished his right to recovery under California state civil law. Children under the age of 18 have two years from the date of their 18th birthday to file a civil lawsuit in court.
Average Truck Accident Case Settlement
Once of the most common questions asked by our clients is regarding the monetary amount of financial compensation available. This is a complicated question to answer because every case is different; comprising of factors unique to the specific case. We have outlined a list of the most important factors which can play a crucial role in determining your case value.
Death of a Loved One from Truck Accidents – Wrongful Death
The death of a family member is a great tragedy resulting in deep psychological wounds and in many cases severe financial issues. In many cases family members of the victims are left with mounting hospital bills and funeral costs and are unable to support their family due to the financial constraints caused by the loss of a individual that was the main earner in the family. In the state of California certain family members have the right to pursue recovery for the financial and psychological damage caused by the death of a loved one. Family members who can participate in a wrongful death claim include the spouse (husband or wife) of the deceased, the children of the deceased, putative spouses and domestic partners. Parents of individuals who died may be able to pursue a wrongful death action if they were in some way financially dependent on their child and there are no surviving children on spouses of the deceased. Siblings (brother, and sisters) of the deceased would be able to recover if they were financially dependent on the victims and there were no surviving spouses or children.
