There is something to be said for being at the right place at the right time. But what about when you have a knack for being at the wrong place at the wrong time, like inside a motor-vehicle when a commercial truck ride goes terribly wrong? Truck accident injury is serious and those injured should consider filing a personal injury claim.
Filing a negligence suit after suffering truck accident injuries may be advisable. This is especially true if you believe the truck driver, company or related third-party was responsible, at least partially, for the injuries you or loved ones suffered in the crash. Truck accidents generally have more moving parts to them than do regular personal injury claims associated with car accidents. This is due to a few factors including federal regulations of commercial trucks and the potential negligent parties involved.
Truck drivers and related companies are held to a higher standard than are passenger drivers. While everyone is expected to drive safely, there are extra regulations imposed on trucks that try to ensure the truck accidents do not happen. Of course, they still do, but regulations can help to prove a truck driver, or truck company’s negligence that contributed to personal injury as a result of the crash. At the Law Offices of Bailey & Burke, we take these instances seriously to ensure a favorable outcome for our injured clients.
Insurance will not cover all aspects that can impact a person after suffering truck accident injury including lost wages. Lost wages can impact a person after suffering truck accident injury because they aren’t able to return to work in the short-term and possibly even long-term. This is just one factor that could have a huge impact on the injured and their family. Try to envision how compensation for truck accident injuries could affect you and your family.
