How Do I Win My Dallas Truck Accident Wrongful Death Claim?
When someone dies in a truck accident, the trucking company and its insurer can be held liable for millions of dollars in damages. Because of this, trucking companies very rarely agree to pay victims a full and fair settlement. They have the means to employ insurance professionals that know how to trick and bully claimants into making mistakes and jeopardizing their claims. All too often, these aggressive tactics work and trucking companies get away with injustice.
Don't let this happen to you. Consult with an experienced Dallas truck accident lawyer who has the investigatory skills, legal knowledge, and overall capability to strengthen your claim. An investigation of the following may assist in establishing liability:
- The trucking company's driving logs and records;
- Vehicle maintenance records;
- Potential violations of federal and state regulations; and
- Past violations.
Other effective evidence may include witness and expert testimony, medical and police records, traffic camera footage, and photos.
What Compensation Is Available in a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident that took your loved one's life, you may recover the following damages:
- Financial losses, such as the loss of the deceased person's earning capacity, care, maintenance, services, support, and so on.
- Mental anguish, also known as pain and suffering.
- Loss of love, comfort, companionship, and society.
