The loss of a family member or loved one is a tragedy that can never be adequately compensated by a financial recovery. But our legal system allows only money damages for such a loss. There is no other way to punish the negligent party or to try to ensure they correct the faults that caused such a loss. Money damages can be paid for such items as loss of earnings, support, love and affection, medical expenses, and pain and suffering prior to the time of death among others.
After the loss of a loved one, the last thing the family wants to think about is taking legal action. But in many cases, prompt action is required to investigate the circumstances and to preserve evidence. Waiting to retain legal counsel can be damaging to any future claims.

Just as collisions between a car and a motorcycle frequently involve serious injuries, collisions between a large truck and an automobile many times involve significant property damage and serious injuries or even death. Sometimes in truck collisions the insurance company will deny a claim for no reason other than to protect the driving record of the truck driver. Truckers must follow specific State and Federal regulations. It is important to retain a law firm that understands these regulations. A prompt and thorough investigation into the truck driver’s driving record, his “logs” and the condition of his tractor trailer rig are essential. We have handled many cases involving truckers and 18-wheelers.
