Syracuse, NY- There is approximately 5.6 million tractor-trailers in the U.S. These large trucks can present a great danger to motorists and are twice as likely to cause death when they are involved in a traffic accident. When you have lost a loved one as a result of another person’s negligence, you have legal recourses you can explore to seek justice on the behalf of yourself and your deceased loved one.

When filing a wrongful death claim as a result of a truck accident, it is critical the victims retain a personal injury attorney with a proven track record. The attorneys at the DeFrancisco & Falgiatano law firm have a great track record of recovering large settlement for the clients they represent.

A wrongful death suit allows a person to not only seek compensation for their emotional distress, but also for the future financial problems they encounter as a result of a family member’s untimely death.  Parents, children and spouses of wrongful death victims are allowed to seek compensation for their medical and funeral expenses, loss of financial support, loss of companionship and pain and suffering.

Although the courts determine the final settlement amount a truck accident victim is entitled to, a Syracuse wrongful death attorney with skills and expertise can influence the amount the court awards.  In some instances, truck accident victims may also be able to recover punitive damages if the court finds the negligence to be reckless or depraved.
