Here’s the conclusion to our blog series entitled Fatal Truck Accidents: 6 Facts You Should Know.
Additional Important Info about Fatal Truck Accidents in the U.S.
5 – Fatal truck accidents cost the U.S. economy roughly $40 billion annually.
The most important fact to know about fatal truck accidents is that, when negligence is involved, we can help victims obtain justice and compensation.
While the impacts of fatal truck accidents can be devastating to victims, including their families, the damage caused by these wrecks is actually far greater when looking at the bigger picture. In fact, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have found that fatal truck accidents cost tens of billions of dollars to the national economy each year – about $40 billion to be more precise.
Just some of sources of these costs specifically include (but are by no means exclusive to) the costs of:
- Response and cleanup in the immediate aftermath of fatal truck accidents
- Medical treatments and care when it may be possible to try to save people involved in these collisions
- Lost productivity, vehicle repair costs, repairs to the road(s) and related features, etc.
- Subsequent investigations.
6 – When fatal truck accidents involved negligence, families have options for financial recovery.
After fatal truck accidents, we know that there is nothing that can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we also know that:
- Getting financial support during these times can be crucial to putting a loved one to rest properly while alleviating some of families’ financial stresses during these times.
- Pursuing a truck accident lawsuit against the negligent party (or parties) can be important to obtaining a sense of justice and/or some small degree of closure.
So, if your loved one has passed away in a fatal truck accident, don’t hesitate to contact us today to learn more about your best options for financial recovery and get your case started at no cost.
