Head on Collisions Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
One of the deadliest types of vehicle accidents that can occur is a head-on collision with a large commercial truck. Even at slower speeds, the sheer weight of 10,000-80,000 pounds can crush passenger vehicles and their occupants. Many truck head-on collisions are fatalities, taking away someone’s life and leaving behind grief for their loved ones. If you have lost a family member in a deadly head-on truck collision, you deserve to know your options to seek restitution for your loss.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association or FMCSA reports details of all truck crash statistics. Since 1975, the FMSCA has reported over 4,000 fatalities almost every year that occur in large truck and bus accidents. In 2016, there were over 100,000 injuries in truck accidents, many of these serious and life-altering. When a serious injury or fatality is caused by a large truck, it is heartbreaking. There is nothing that can undo the damage, but it is important that the victims receive the compensation they need to recover.
Complexities of Fatality Truck Accidents
Head-on collisions with large trucks are likely to cause fatalities for anyone outside the truck. These cases are much different than a typical injury vehicle accident. There are many different factors that must be considered, both in determining who was at fault and who was liable for the loss of a human life.
