Head on Collisions – Fatal Trucking Accident Lawyer
Having a large semi-truck or commercial dump truck hit another vehicle head on is one of the most tragic and deadly truck accidents possible on the road. Large commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and most are large enough to drive over smaller cars and trucks if they have enough speed. Most people do not survive a head on collision with a large truck, as it is usually a fatality accident. Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC is a head on collision-fatal trucking accident lawyer who will fight for the rights of the victim and their family.
Head on collisions with large trucks are not common, but they do occur. These are the most tragic of truck accidents, especially since they can always be avoided. For a truck to hit another vehicle head on, the driver must swerve into oncoming traffic or go the wrong way on a one-way street. It can happen when a truck driver is fatigued and falls asleep at the wheel or is using drugs or alcohol while driving. Poor maintenance on the truck or equipment failure can also cause these serious accidents. When a truck driver is involved in a fatality accident, it changes their lives and those of their victim’s family forever.
Fatality Truck Accident Lawsuits
There is no amount of money that is worth a person’s life. However, financial compensation for the family can ease the burden on those left behind and also be a form of punitive justice. Head on collisions that result in a fatal truck accident lawsuit need to be carefully investigated to understand the cause and determine all the entities that may be partially responsible. This includes the driver but also may involve their employer or the company they are contracted through, depending on the circumstance.
