Tractor Trailer Accident FAQs
Life is a precious thing and it can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. While operating a motor vehicle always comes with risks, we rarely account for how quickly an accident can happen at the hands of a negligent driver. We are well aware that our work as attorneys cannot bring back a loved one lost in an accident. We can however help Florida drivers understand that there are actions that you can take to help alleviate some of the pain caused by the loss. Unfortunately, there are many costs associated with a family member’s death following an accident, including medical costs and funeral arrangements. Dan Newlin Injury Attorneys want to do everything we can to help with the aftermath of an accident and help to give you the necessary time needed to grieve.
Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things you will have to go through. Unfortunately, you will have to take care of potential medical costs as well as funeral arrangements which can be very costly. It is important to know that assistance is available. If your loved one was an insured driver, funeral benefits up to $10,000 may be available through their own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. If they were uninsured but they were killed by an insured driver, funeral benefits may be awarded from that driver’s insurance. Dan Newlin Injury Attorneys are more than happy, free of charge, to investigate what benefits are available and to help you find someone who can help you make arrangements no matter what your financial situation.
If someone is killed as a result of an accident with a tractor trailer truck or any other commercial vehicle, while it is not considered criminal, it is considered to be wrongful death. Wrongful death is a pursuable claim for damages against the party that is responsible and their insurance company. We can also help you bring a claim against the driver’s employer. We encourage you to read our Area of Practice on wrongful death. Dan Newlin and his team has both experience and success as Florida truck accident attorneys.
