Truck Accident Attorneys
Pursuing Justice For Victims Of 18-Wheeler Accidents
When a semi-truck and a smaller vehicle are in a collision or accident, it is not uncommon for the size and mass of the truck to protect the truck driver while doing substantial damage to the occupants of the smaller vehicle. Injuries from a truck accident are frequently catastrophic or fatal. The truck driver and his or her trucking company should be held accountable for the harm done.

What You Should Know About Truck Accidents
Victims of truck accidents often suffer a great deal of emotional, physical, and mental pain especially since a truck accident can be so violent. What’s more, these victims can often become victims of insurance companies because insurance companies do everything possible to limit their exposure and to pay out as little as possible. It isn’t unusual for truck accident victims to be limited in their work capacity or even be unable to work. While their income is cut down substantially or completely interrupted, medical bills, living expenses, and other day-to-day necessities become very difficult to keep up with financially.
Unfortunately, under state law, a truck accident victim have a limited time to pursue a claim for just compensation. It’s called the “statute of limitations,” and it puts in place a deadline for the amount of time you have to take legal action. It is of the utmost importance that you speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to learn about your rights and which options are available to you.
