Helping Those Who Have Lost A Loved One On The Road
Tractor-trailers and other large commercial vehicles often weigh in excess of 40 tons (80,000 pounds). When this much weight travels at high speeds, such as trucks traveling in Virginia along I-77, I-81, US-52, US-58 and other highways, vehicle accidents can quickly become fatal. In these instances, a wrongful death lawsuit may help you hold the truck driver and other negligent parties accountable for the losses they caused.

Gathering Evidence From Trucking Accidents
In truck accident cases, especially those that lead to someone’s death, it is vital to obtain witness testimony and evidence as soon as possible so that it does not conveniently disappear. Some of the evidence that is unique to truck litigation includes:
- Paperless log systems (PLS)
- Written driver logs
- Electronic control module (ECM), also known as the black box
- Collision warning sensors
In addition to gathering this evidence, we stand by your side at all stages of your case and help you navigate through the complicated procedures involved in wrongful death lawsuits.
