North Carolina Truck Accident Results in Fatality

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted December 16, 2015

Suffering the death of a loved one in a fatal accident has to be one of the most difficult experiences possible in life. Only those who have been through it themselves can understand the utter shock and grief a person suffers upon learning that a family member has been killed. When a death has occurred as a result of a North Carolina truck accident, feelings of anger and frustration may accompany grief, especially if the accident was caused by another person’s negligence.

On a recent Monday afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m., an incident took place that resulted in a fatality. Highway Patrol troopers were called to a tragic scene. Apparently, a tractor-trailer and a sports utility vehicle collided in a head-on crash.

Sadly, the occupant of the sports vehicle did not survive the accident. No reports were given as to the identity of the injured victim, pending notification of family members. Reportedly, a diesel spill occurred on the road when a saddle tank separated from the truck upon impact in the crash. It remains unclear which driver may have been at fault for the crash, and an investigation is likely ongoing.

When a North Carolina truck accident results in the death of an innocent victim, the situation sometimes results in a legal claim being filed in a civil court. It is understandable that some people are not prepared to face the expenses associated with a sudden tragedy. In such cases, seeking a monetary judgment against a party deemed responsible for a collision can lead to compensation if the claim is successful, thus providing funds that can help offset funeral costs, medical bills or other financial debt sustained in the accident.
