Getting into a truck accident can put your entire life at risk and result in serious injuries to your family members both physically and emotionally. The size of a truck combined with its weight can make it a formidable vehicle that could crush smaller vehicles like cars or motorcycles. If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or other big rig, then it’s important to start looking into your options.
Your accident may be no fault of your own. Maybe the 18-wheeler’s driver didn’t look before he changed lanes and struck your vehicle. Maybe he didn’t stop when you were slowing down for stopped traffic. Whatever the reason, there’s no way you can be expected to front the bills for your medical expenses, funeral costs or other needs. This accident wasn’t your fault, so you shouldn’t be paying for the consequences.
While you’re recovering from your injury or loss, you need time away from your accident to heal. You don’t want to be negotiating settlements or discussing accusations that you were the one at fault. You have every right to let someone else argue your case for you, so they can make sure the reckless driver has to pay for his actions; all you’ll need to do is focus on your recovery.
