Hundreds of people lose their lives on a monthly basis as a result of truck accidents that take place in the United States. In many instances, these accidents occur suddenly and unexpectedly. Regrettably, the consequences are lasting and far-reaching.
Families who lose loved ones in fatal truck accidents often deal with overwhelming mental and financial consequences. After losing a loved one, your family may be able to pursue a legal claim for compensation.
It is important to understand the damages that can be recovered. Medical expenses are typically the largest portion of damages awarded after a fatal truck accident. This includes hospitalization costs and any accident-related medical expenses for your loved one from the time of the accident to the date of their passing.
You can also recover lost earning capacity if your loved one was employed prior to their passing. This amount generally requires a complex calculation, so hiring a skilled legal team to determine the total amount of lost earning capacity is important.
Additionally, you can recover compensation for the cost of funeral arrangements for your loved one.
