Injuries that result from truck accidents can be severe. The sheer size of an 18-wheeler contributes to extensive damage in the event of a crash. Injuries sustained in truck accidents are often more serious than injuries from car accidents, and can be catastrophic or even life-threatening. Victims of truck accidents, and their families, can potentially be saddled with high medical costs, funeral expenses, vehicle repair payments, rehabilitation program fees, lost wages, and financial stress resulting from a long-term disability.
To ensure you are able to recover the resources you need to cover the expenses resulting from the accident, as well as compensation for pain and suffering, you should get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible.
Following a collision with any commercial vehicle, the company’s legal team and insurance provider will be working aggressively to deny liability, and avoid paying any fees to you. To defend your case, you should begin gathering evidence immediately, and contact an experienced accident lawyer to assist you. In the aftermath of an accident, photos and maintenance records are almost always helpful for establishing a case. An attorney can evaluate your specific circumstance, and advise you on any additional pieces of evidence that may help.
