WELCOME TO THE ACTS LAW
There is no question that commercial truck accidents are some of the most devastating and destructive accidents, given the size, weight, and sheer force of these massive big rigs. It is usually the occupants of the passenger vehicle involved in the accident who suffer the most severe, often fatal injuries. The costs associated with these catastrophic accidents can quickly accumulate, particularly if the victim’s injuries are extensive and he or she is unable to return to work. To seek financial compensation, the injured victim will need to file a personal injury claim against the truck driver or the truck company. However, the last thing truck companies want is to be held liable for a truck accident, and they will resort to a range of tactics to avoid a costly settlement. Therefore, it is in the victim’s best interest to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer who can negotiate with the truck company and seek the best possible financial outcome.
Although truck accidents represent a relatively small percentage of the total accidents that occur on roads and highways across the United States, when they do happen, the property damage and injuries tend to be quite severe, and the damages can be extremely costly. Pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against a truck company can be intimidating and overwhelming, particularly when the victim is in the process of recovering from serious injuries. This process can become even more challenging if truck companies use the following tactics to avoid liability:
Injured victims can assume that the truck driver and the truck company will have a team of lawyers who will fight hard to keep them from having to pay a large settlement. That is why it is so important that an injured party is also represented by skilled legal professionals who have their best interests at heart. It can be difficult to hold the truck company responsible for an accident without the help of skilled legal counsel. The following are specific examples of how an experienced truck accident lawyer can help individuals who have been seriously injured in a truck accident:
Injuries caused by large truck accidents are usually severe, if not fatal. For victims who survive a truck accident, their life may never be the same, particularly if they suffered a spinal cord injury or a serious head injury. The following are examples of common injuries that truck accidents can cause:
If a truck accident victim is fortunate enough to survive the crash, he or she will likely face a long road to recovery. Common truck accident injuries can include spinal cord injuries, multiple bone fractures, internal injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. In addition to severe physical injuries, victims can suffer serious emotional and cognitive injuries as well. Recovering from these injuries can require extensive medical treatment, surgeries, physical therapy, and long-term care if there are permanent impairments. Truck accident victims are entitled to the following damages:
Unfortunately, owing to the massive size and weight of the average commercial truck, it is usually the occupants of the passenger vehicle who suffer the most severe, often fatal injuries. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), 4,136 people were fatally injured in large truck accidents in 2018, and 67 percent of the fatalities were the occupants of cars and passenger vehicles. This tragic loss is devastating to the victim’s family, friends, and loved ones. If the truck accident caused a fatality, the surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances of the case, the family may be eligible for the following damages:
