As most people make their way to work, school, the store or other everyday destinations via the highways, they generally aren’t too concerned by the many trucks traveling in their immediate vicinity. That’s because they trust that those behind the wheels of these mechanical behemoths are both competent and conscientious.
The unfortunate reality, however, is that this trust is perhaps misplaced, as many truckers are neither mindful of road safety nor traffic laws. While this is certainly discouraging, it can also prove to be deadly. Indeed, statistics show that there are as many as 1,115 fatal crashes involving large trucks here in the U.S. every year.
While some are fortunate enough to survive these crashes, they are often left with severe, permanent and wholly catastrophic injuries, such as spinal trauma or traumatic brain injuries.
Given the sheer devastation wrought by truck accidents, it may not be immediately clear to accident victims and their families where to turn for help.
While insurance companies may reach out, it’s clear that they don’t always have their best interests in mind. Similarly, while a representative of the trucking company may make a settlement offer, it may not seem sufficient given everything that’s transpired.
