Tow truck crash leads to wrongful death lawsuit

Many types of accidents are simply a matter of fate or chance, and the results cannot be considered anyone's fault. Many accidents are also the result of people's behavior, which showed disregard for the consequences. If the second type is a serious accident, it could result in injury or even death.

Two people were killed in a two-vehicle collision in Lafayette when a tow truck struck the vehicle they were in after crossing the centerline of the road. The family of one of the victims has begun a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver of the truck and his former employer.

The lawsuit claims that the truck's driver was under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident. It states that the actions leading up to the crash were reckless. It also claims the driver's employer was negligent in employing him and failing to educate him properly in the truck's operation. He was subsequently fired by the tow truck's owner.

The plaintiff named another company in the lawsuit, claiming that the owner was attempting to shield itself from liability by creating a new company and transferring assets. An attorney may be able to help people in a similar situation who are looking for justice and financial help after a tragedy.

Civil suits for wrongful death may be brought whether or not local authorities have attempted to press criminal charges. A lawyer can help work out if this is a good option after examining the available evidence and advising the survivors of victims on how to best recover from a loss.
