Injuries that individuals and families across Southern Alabama suffer in vehicle accidents involving trucks are often comparatively serious, even catastrophic.
That is obvious, and immediately understandable to any driver who has even been remotely challenged by an 18-wheel big rig or another commercial truck on a state road or interstate.
Those conveyances are flatly outsized, commonly weighing as much as 10 passenger vehicles or more and with formidably large height and width dimensions.
Understandably, drivers in those rigs have limited visibility. Moreover, it can take them hundreds of feet to stop or even slow their trucks appreciably.
And this too should be noted: Commercial truckers are typically in a hurry, being subject to tight scheduling dictates. They sometimes speed. Driver fatigue is a prominently noted problem in the industry.
Those factors and more often play into injury outcomes for third parties in smaller vehicles who are merely seeking to share the road.
The aftermath of a truck crash: often complex and deadly
Finding the truth surrounding a truck crash is far from routinely being a simple matter. Responsible parties can be multiple (e.g., drivers and negligent truck company management), and defendants’ insurers do everything they can to deny or minimize legal claims. Injured victims and their loved ones need to take a proactive and aggressive post-crash stance to ensure accountability and justice.
What can a meaningful crash-linked remedy provide for?
A maximum damage remedy can help a crash victim and family members in broad-based ways, being applicable to these and additional matters:
- Medical expenses
- Future rehabilitation/therapy outlays
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
