Fatal Accident in Del Norte County

Truck accidents are extremely serious accidents that can very easily lead to fatalities. This is due to the sheer size alone of commercial trucks compared to small passenger vehicles on our roadways.

If you have lost somebody close to you in a horrific accident that you believe could have been prevented, we wish to extend our sincerest condolences to you. We were extremely saddened to hear about this accident and hope that the family can recover during this difficult time.

Authorities examine a variety of elements in truck accident cases, which can turn from minor to deadly in a matter of seconds. Was the driver obeying all the rules of the road? Were they driving distracted or drowsy at the time due to the hours they logged on the roadways? Were they speeding above the posted limit? The investigation will determine these factors to ensure a family that they, in fact, do have rights during this difficult time.

The surviving family of the deceased might be eligible to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of their loved one for a variety of aspects like loss of consortium, medical bills, lost wages, funeral costs, and more.
