According to Drive Safe Alabama's data, more than 930 individuals tragically lost their lives in car accidents across the state in 2020. Collisions involving semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles tend to result in severe and often fatal injuries for those involved.

In the unfortunate circumstance of a family member passing away in a fatal truck accident, families may have legal avenues to pursue. Typically, they opt for wrongful death claims against the responsible party to seek financial assistance for funeral expenses, burial costs, and other financial strains following the sudden loss of a loved one.

Engaging a Northport wrongful death attorney as soon as possible is crucial when pursuing a wrongful death claim after a fatal truck accident. These accidents frequently entail multiple parties who may share liability for the resulting damages and loss of life. Truck drivers are usually held accountable for accidents caused by risky behaviors such as speeding or driving while distracted.

Additionally, trucking companies can be held responsible for hiring unqualified drivers, while entities like cargo loading firms, maintenance companies, or manufacturers may also be at fault under specific circumstances. An attorney will conduct a detailed investigation to identify the parties responsible for the accident that led to your loved one's passing.
