Truck accidents can completely change your life

Car accidents involving commercial trucks are all too common. When a large commercial vehicle collides with a smaller personal vehicle, the people inside the smaller vehicle are at increased risk of severe injury or even death. Many of these accidents would have been preventable by more careful driving by the individual operating the commercial truck.

Whether it was caused by exhaustion or failure to check a blind spot, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney if you or a loved one were injured in an accident caused by a commercial truck.

Given the potential for catastrophic injuries and massive amounts of property damage, a single accident with a truck can change your life forever. You and your family deserve better. That's why you need to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after an accident with a commercial truck.

Truck accidents can cause serious personal injury

In an accident involving such massive and heavy vehicles, the potential for severe injuries exists. Those who suffer injuries in an accident with a commercial truck could suffer broken bones, spinal injuries, head and brain injuries and serious contusions. That means that recovering from an accident could require emergency trauma care, surgery, plastic surgery, physical therapy and more. All of that treatment can be very expensive, especially when you consider lost wages during your recovery. An accident with a commercial truck has the potential to be financially devastating for your family.

Working with an experienced personal injury attorney can help ensure the best possible outcome. Your attorney can advocate on your behalf to insurers, helping secure payment for medical expenses while insurance companies fight one another about liability. Your attorney can also review any settlements offered by the truck driver's insurance or employer. It's important to remember that the funds will need to cover your lost wages, current medical expenses and future medical expenses from the accident. Far too often, first settlement offers are intentionally low and won't fully cover the costs of an accident.

Your attorney can advocate for you

You don't need to worry about securing coverage from an insurance company or paying for medical procedures after a serious accident. Retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney can give you peace of mind about your medical expenses, allowing you to focus more completely on your efforts toward recovery. Your attorney can help in a variety of ways after an accident. From reviewing potential settlement offers to filing a civil lawsuit to recover your losses, he or she can help protect you and your future in the wake of a serious accident caused by a commercial truck.
