When it’s 18-wheelers versus cars, trucks are undefeated

Every second of every day there is millions of tons of steel thundering along our nations roadways. 18-wheelers. Big-rigs. Cement ships. Important, vital cogs in the economy of the country, to be sure. Dangerous. Deadly at times. Absolutely!

And, when one of these trucks hits a driver, well, bad things happen.

Trucking accidents are no joke. Truckers are not paid to drive slowly and they are almost always loaded down with tons and tons of goods. When they have an accident, at those speeds, with that weight, people get injured, serious property damage ensues and people die.

If your vehicle has been struck, rolled over, hit from behind or sideswiped by a truck you and your family may be due considerable monetary awards for your injuries.

Trucking accidents are violent.
Trucking accidents are unforgiving.
Trucking accidents are costly both physically and financially.
Trucking accidents involve serious personal injury and death.

When passenger vehicles, motorcycles, public transportation, pedestrians or even public transport are struck by a truck there is almost always catastrophic damage to person and property. The immediate and longer term damage can include vehicle damage, vehicle repair, vehicle replacement, medical care, hospital, doctors and medicine, rehabilitation, physical therapy, lost wages due to loss of ability to work, loss of benefits, loss of companionship and in events where there is loss of life a whole new array of costs and stresses on family and loved ones arise.
