No one wants to imagine being in an accident with an 18-wheeler. After an 18-wheeler accident, it is not unusual for passengers in the car to suffer serious injuries that can lead to disability or death.
Injuries that occur when a passenger vehicle collides with an 18-wheeler include internal injuries, broken bones, injury to the spinal cord, and traumatic brain injury.

Not only do victims lose wages, but they also face steep costs for medical care. This can result in financial ruin for accident victims and their families. For these reasons, seek legal counsel from an experienced lawyer who specializes in helping victims who have been injured in truck accidents.
If you are seriously injured due to an accident caused by an 18-wheeler, you may not be able to return to work.

If you are a victim of a truck accident, you’ll be tempted to handle your case on your own. Don’t fall into the insurance companies’ traps. They use tactics they will use to pressure you into a settlement. They’ll have teams of experienced lawyers working around the clock to reduce the amount of money you could be eligible to receive.
