How To Pursue Compensation For Injuries And Fatalities Caused By Truck Accidents
Any motor vehicle accident involving a truck – especially a big rig or utility truck – is likely to result in serious injuries or death. People in cars, on motorcycles, on bicycles and on foot are no match for the weight and momentum of a truck. Catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are common among survivors. Long-term medical care, therapy and disability will turn someone’s life upside down and likely affect family members, too.
