Anonymous Death After Falling Into Truck Path

July 12, 2022 in Uncategorized | MARTIN WREN, P.C. | LEAVE A COMMENT

In Richmond, VA, a man was struck by a tractor-trailer after falling from the Powhite Parkway overpass. The incident occurred on the morning of June 2, 2022 at 6:38 a.m., when a man fell from the overpass and was hit by a commercial truck. As law enforcement arrived at the scene near Forest Hill Avenue, the man was on the ground and unresponsive. All lanes on the parkway were shut down immediately, opened back up at 9:15 a.m., and an investigation into the potential factors of the accident is still underway. As of current, the deceased has not been named, and a medical examiner will assess the cause of death. 

As a truck accident lawyer Richmond VA residents rely on from MartinWren, P.C. has seen before, victims in truck-related accidents tend to suffer severe injury, if not fatality. Those who do survive may have their health, functioning, and lives changed. In the above example, it is unclear whether the driver of the truck had an influence in the accident occurring. There seems to be many missing details about how and why the gentleman fell, and if there was any negligence on behalf of the truck driver that contributed to the incident unfolding. 

With so many unanswered questions, it’s no wonder that people turn to legal professionals for help. A qualified legal team knows how to investigate accidents in such a way that unknown factors and evidence can be brought to light. Our lawyers have the tenacity, strategy, and connections needed to find evidence that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. 

Those who have been in a truck-related accident tend to suffer physically and financially. This is when a lawyer can step in, as they can advocate for the victim and their recovery by seeking restitution from the party at-fault. In truck accidents, it isn’t uncommon for the party at-fault to be either the truck driver, trucking company, part manufacturer, loading team, or a combination of all. With our professional know-how, we can investigate to see who should be liable for the victim’s suffering. When a person acts recklessly and hurts another, they should be held accountable.

While in the case of the anonymous man who fell and was hit by a truck driver, the cause and effect remains unclear. But if you or a loved one became the victims in a truck accident, then it is more than worth having our team investigate the situation further to see who should be held responsible for the damages and losses that ensued. Victims of personal injury accidents, such as truck collisions, may find they are relieved to have a lawyer protecting their behalf and fighting relentlessly for fair restitution. Without a dedicated legal team, victims of personal injury accidents can suffer greatly, when they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
