A West Virginia family claims that a log truck driver is responsible for a truck accident that caused a significant amount of physical and emotional damage. Two parents and their young daughter were in a car traveling along Route 2 when they were struck by a log truck. The truck accident involved a company vehicle owned by MG Miller Trucking Company.
According to the claim filed by the family, the truck did not stop near the intersection of Route 2 and Route 193. Consequently the log truck struck the family vehicle, along with several other vehicles. It is not clear what injuries and damages were sustained in the incident. However, the West Virginia family did confirm that the accident caused them to suffer from unspecified injuries.
When an individual or family has suffered because of the actions of another driver, they have the right to seek monetary compensation for any physical or emotional damage they have endured. This will only be rewarded when there is ample physical evidence to validate the claims of the petitioner. In this specific case, the log company may be found liable for the damages from the accident. The best way to validate claims in a personal injury or wrongful death case is with documentation and other proof.
Any settlement granted will be to cover the cost of medical expenses and other factors associated with the truck accident. When a driver endangers others with negligent driving, victims always have the right to explore the option of financial compensation. A complete evaluation of the entire incident could determine if legal action is needed.
