Wrongful Death



An accident with a large truck is the most frightening experience any automobile driver will face. Many of these catastrophes result in the driver of the car being severely injured or killed. It is well documented that the majority of wrongful deaths and severe injuries on the road have resulted from accidents involving trucks rather than between two cars. Regrettably, these types of accidents are becoming more common on roads and highways today.

The tremendous damages that result from auto versus truck accidents can lead to even more troubling financial losses to the victim and their families. The law provides the ability of an individual to recoup these expenses from the responsible party, only if enforced properly. Some of these expenses include medical bills, lost wages, funeral expenses as well as other economic losses. Along with these tangible expenses, the injured individual is allowed to collect for pain and suffering resulting from their injuries and/or treatment. The spouse of the injured person may also be permitted to recover for the loss of services of their partner. Monetary reimbursement can never come close to the damages suffered by the victim, but it will certainly help combat the financial burdens caused by the accident.

The defense team for the trucking company will begin the investigation almost instantly. Their main goal is to keep the repayment amount as low as possible. For this reason, the initial stages of the claim can be very complicated and detailed. While you are trying to recover from the accident, whether you are in the hospital or not, the insurance companies are frantically trying to shun responsibility. Within the first 24 hours, witnesses are being interviewed, vehicles are being examined, photographs are being taken, and police reports are being analyzed. You are trying to get well.

You need someone to protect your rights. You need someone doing the same thing for you that the insurance companies are doing for the trucking company. We have the experienced staff to make sure you are being represented properly. Call Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie at 1-888-752-7474 or Contact Us Page.
