Our deepest condolences go out to the Jefferson family. Losing a loved one is never easy, but the pain is made even worse when the loss is sudden and unexpected.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
The Jefferson family should consider speaking with a Virginia wrongful death lawyer to discuss their legal options. They may have grounds to seek damages against the at-fault box truck driver. The family is not precluded from filing a claim in civil court just because the driver is facing criminal charges.
