Every day, countless commercial trucks, tractor trailers & 18 wheelers share the roads with other motor vehicles. These trucks are extremely large, carry immense loads, and literally weight tons. Therefore, you can imagine what could happen to people who are involved in a collision with one of these gigantic trucks, especially when it comes to their odds of escaping alive or uninjured.
After a trucking accident occurs, people who are involved in the accident will usually sustain serious, life-threatening injuries. These could become worse with time unless the person is able to obtain proper medical treatment. After a person is involved in a trucking accident, it is likely that the trucking company will try to get involved. Oftentimes, when these crashes occur the case for the accident can be traced back to the truck company. (This can include speeding, driving while fatigued, a company’s negligent failure to inspect trucks for proper loading, etc) For this reason, trucking companies may try to act quickly in order to cover up their mistakes. They may try to get an injured party to settle prior to the case being taken to court because they want to avoid investigation which could lead to their need to pay out maximum damage costs.
If you have been involved in a truck accident that was caused by negligent or reckless behavior, you should consult with a personal injury attorney. In some cases, you may be allowed to file a lawsuit to seek damages from the negligent party who caused your injuries. From compensation for bodily damages, property damages, medical bills, lost earning potential, lost income, pain & suffering.
