Most major highways are filled with traffic traveling at high rates of speed on a daily basis. In Hawaii and all other states, much of that traffic is comprised of massive tractor-trailers and other large commercial vehicles. When truck accidents occur, the results are often devastating. More than one person may suffer life-threatening injuries, and many victims do not survive the tremendous impacts of such collisions.
The law firm of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks helps families whose loved ones were killed in crashes that involved tractor-trailers. Very often, the insurance issues associated with a truck accident are complicated. We are committed to helping you sift through your legal options to determine how best to address such matters in a swift and economically feasible fashion.
There are typically many regulations regarding weights of vehicles and weights of loads, along with other rules that trucks are required to follow that, should they fail, can affect the outcomes of situations. Our attorneys can investigate the accident that caused your loved one’s death to determine the way to approach a legal claim. Obviously, families of deceased victims are often met with financial expenses, such as funeral costs or medical bills for care rendered before death, that can be offset by compensation received in a successfully litigated case.
Those who survive their injuries are also at risk for serious financial burdens. Because the injuries suffered in truck accidents are often catastrophic, the medical treatments necessary for recovery may continue for long periods. Spinal cord and brain injuries may also leave victims in need of daily living assistance, which is typically very expensive. To help offset some of the costs associated with truck accidents, recovering victims can file personal injury claims against the drivers deemed negligent. Whether acting on one’s own behalf or as a representative of a deceased family member, the attorneys at Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks are available for free consultations to determine your options for pursuing compensation in Hawaii.
