Liability In Truck Accidents
According to IIHS, “Most deaths in large truck crashes are passenger vehicle occupants. The main problem is the vulnerability of people traveling in smaller vehicles. Trucks often weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars and are taller with greater ground clearance, which can result in smaller vehicles underriding trucks in crashes.”
Victims of truck accidents are able to recover damages for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A truck accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your rights are. There are statute of limitations associated with being able to file a claim, so it’s important to act quickly.
