Understanding the Truck Accident Lawsuit Process
Unfortunately, getting into an accident with an 18-wheeler can truly be devastating–particularly since many such accidents occur at high speeds on the highway. A fully-loaded 18-wheeler can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, causing a catastrophic impact with your 4,000 pound car.
- Victims of trucking accidents frequently face:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ injuries
- Spinal cord injuries including paralysis
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other significant neurological damage
- Loss of a limb
- Severe burn
…and even death
These injures can be life-long and require extensive and expensive medical care, rehabilitation and ongoing support.
