Were You Or A Loved One Injured In A Truck Accident?
Few collisions are as devastating as trucking accidents. We all brace a little harder against the steering wheel when an 18-wheeler passes us on the highway, and for good reason. A car, motorcycle, or pedestrian has little chance of coming away from a truck accident unscathed, and all too often, these wrecks result in the tragic death of a loved one.
If you’ve been injured in a collision with a truck, you deserve a financial recovery to aid you in the process of your physical recovery. If you lost a loved one in a trucking accident, no amount of money can make up for your loss, but it can alleviate the financial strain of a lifetime of your loved one’s lost income.
Costs Of Truck Accident Injuries
There are emotional and financial costs of truck accident injuries. Civil court is designed to help you recover those financial costs so you can focus on overcoming the emotional trauma. In calculating your financial injury, you need to consider your immediate expenses and your future expenses. When all is said and done, you may be entitled to a lifetime of medical expenses and lost wages.
To understand what your truck accident case may be worth, you should schedule a no-cost consultation with an experienced attorney.
Determining Liability After A Truck Accident
Several factors play into determining who is responsible for a trucking accident. A knowledgeable attorney will help you prepare a case that appropriately focuses on the culpable parties. For instance, the truck driver owes a duty of care in operating the tractor-trailer, but the company that employees the driver has a duty to ensure the driver is capable. Further, there are strict rules imposed by the Federal Motor Safety Administration if the big rig carries hazardous cargo.
