Struck by a truck? You have legal options
Written By: Josh Lowell ~ 9/14/2018

Semitruck drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. Others on the roads depend on this so that they can get to their destination without getting into a crash. When truckers aren't doing what they are supposed to do, which is pay attention to the road, there is a chance that people on the roads might be injured or killed.

You might think that semitrucks on the interstates are the main hazard you need to worry about. However, these large vehicles are also dangerous on city streets. Think about what could happen if a delivery vehicle slammed into a pedestrian who was trying to cross the street.

We know that you have a lot to deal with when you get hit by a truck. Whether you are in your vehicle or are a pedestrian, the injuries you suffer can be catastrophic. You might be in for a long road to recovery, which can include a lengthy hospital stay and time off of work.

The medical bills you have coming in and the lack of income when you have to miss work can become stressful. You might soon realize that you need to do something to reduce the financial strain. Seeking compensation may help you.

When you seek compensation, you are letting the trucker, trucking company, insurance company and any other defendant know that you aren't going to accept responsibility for the financial damages that you have due to the crash. We know that this might seem like a big ordeal for you to go through; however, we will remain by your side to help you through it all.
