Injured in a truck accident?
Large commercial trucks (semi’s, tractor-trailers) are vital to America’s economy, but the size and number of trucks can cause significant risks to the health and safety of others on the road. Truck accidents, far more than other types of automotive accidents, can often result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
If you’ve been injured in an accident with a large truck or 18-wheeler, getting proper medical attention is the first priority after a serious accident. It is also important to get experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. Vital investigative information may be lost or destroyed, unless proper steps are taken to discover the facts and make sure that evidence is preserved. If possible, photos of the scene and vehicles should be taken, and the names of any witnesses recorded.
If you’ve been injured in an accident with a large truck or 18-wheeler, you know first-hand how frightening it can be and the physical and financial toll it takes on you in its aftermath. These medical bills can drain your finances dry, but you shouldn’t have to pay when someone else is at fault.

GETTING COMPENSATED AFTER A TRUCK ACCIDENT
No amount of money can substitute for good health or replace a human life. But, full compensation can lessen the financial burden of serious injuries, hold the proper party accountable, and provide the injured with some peace of mind.
