Truck accidents are absolutely devastating events that change not only the lives of the victims of the accident, but their families and loved ones too. Semi-trucks are large, powerful vehicles that cause immense damage when they are involved in a collision with practically any object. The probability that severe, catastrophic or even fatal injuries is high when a truck crashes into other motor vehicles.
As unfortunate as that it is, it’s simply reality. Everyone wishes it were different, but the fact of the matter is that large trucks are very likely to cause major damage and injuries when they are involved in a wreck. What does that mean for the victims of a truck accident?
Well, here’s another unfortunate aspect of truck accidents. In addition to the extreme damage to your vehicle and the likely extreme injuries you have suffered as a result of the accident, the truck company will have an army of lawyers to try to mitigate their liability and the liability of the driver. These lawyers will care only about their client’s cause, and your well-being (and current state of suffering) won’t matter at all.
You need to counteract this by consulting with a personal injury attorney to make sure that the truck company’s army of lawyers don’t trample all over your rights and your attempt to receive fair compensation for the harm you have suffered. We at Trullinger & Wenk relish the opportunity to be the legal champion of a victim of a truck accident, so give us a call if such an unfortunate incident has caused your life to turn upside-down.
