The truck driver who struck Tewell told police that he didn’t see her crossing the road. He wasn’t even aware he struck anyone and had to be flagged down by a motorist.
These two accidents may have been prevented of these two cement trucks were outfitted with mirrors that increase driver visibility.
Following a truck accident, victims and their surviving family members may not know what to do next or who they can turn to for help. They face costly funeral and medical expenses and are left to wonder who will pay for those bills. They can lean on their friends and family for emotional support, but they will need financial support as well. When a truck accident is caused by another party or parties’ negligence, the victim naturally expects those parties to cover their accident-related expenses.
