San Francisco Fatal Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck Accidents & Wrongful Death Claims

Truck accidents are among the most devastating crashes on our roads. These huge carriers may go out of control for a number of reasons, in some cases killing and injuring large numbers in a single accident. Because they travel heavily loaded and some carry hazardous materials, one mishap can pose a number of risks to nearby motorists and pedestrians. They travel at the same speeds of lighter and far more maneuverable vehicles although the distance they need to come to a stop is far greater. It is no surprise that many pedestrians and motorists die in fatal trucking accidents each year. If you have lost a loved one in a truck accident it is crucial that you work with an experienced San Francisco truck accident lawyer in filing your claim.

Why File A Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death is the term used when an individual is killed due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another. When a wrongful death occurs in a trucking accident it means that the fatality was caused by negligent conduct on the part of the truck driver, the trucking company, the shipper, the truck manufacturer or a government entity responsible for safe and well-lighted roadways. In addition to recovering medical expenses, final expense and property damage, as a dependent or surviving spouse you may recover lost income or support and loss of companionship and counsel. If the negligence was particularly serious you may also be entitled to claim punitive damages.

The loss of a loved one through a wrongful death cannot be fully compensated financially. However, achieving some financial security from a fair settlement can allow you the time to begin to rebuild your life. At The Matiasic Firm, we understand this is a difficult time and offer our support and help. Call our office for a consultation with a skilled truck accident lawyer who can explain your rights.
