Sifting through the aftermaths of Alabama trucking accidents

Alabama roadways are often busy, stressful places. Especially when motorists must navigate their paths alongside massive tractor-trailers, traveling state highways can be downright frightening. When trucking accidents occur, families are often left picking up the pieces.

Upon learning of the unexpected deaths of two loved ones, members from one Alabama family arrived at an accident scene after a recent Friday collision. They were mourning the loss of a 30-year-old man and his 70-year-old grandmother. The two beloved family members were killed in a horrific crash with a tractor-trailer.

The young man's girlfriend was on site and told reporters that he was a wonderful person and a great family man. The exact causes of such incidents are not always immediately apparent. Investigators often try to recreate events leading up to such accidents in order to determine what or who may have caused collisions to occur.

In trucking accidents where one or more parties are deemed negligent, recovering victims may file personal injury claims in civil court, seeking reimbursement for financial losses. When fatal injuries occur, spouses, parents or other immediate family members may act on behalf of a decedent to seek monetary judgment against all sources identified as potentially liable. While it's difficult to think beyond one's grief when a loved one's life was suddenly taken in a motor vehicle crash, such situations often leave families in great financial need; successful litigation can provide compensation that can help cover medical and funeral expenses, as well as any other monetary losses associated with an accident.
