Instead Of Running And Hiding After A Truck Accident, Take The Fight To The Transport Company
Tractor-trailers are responsible for much of the cargo that gets transported across the United States. In fact, according to an article published on the Truck Info website, big-rigs deliver almost 70-percent of all the freight moved in the U.S. annually. That is a substantial figure and one that reveals why there are so many trucks on the roadways today. Even right here in Florida, a passenger car driver would have a difficult time not finding one of these units traveling down an interstate during the day or night.
Of course, there is not necessarily anything wrong with this, as the tractor-trailers help the economy thrive. Aside from delivering products to retailers, the trucks often carry fuel, chemicals, lumber, machinery, and more. As demand continues to increase, companies will add more and more units to their fleets. It is already scary enough getting beside, behind, or in front of one of the trucks. Yet, once others arrive on the scene, the situation will become that much worst.
Lots of folks think they won't ever be involved in a crash with an eighteen-wheeler. However, they cannot control everything, and a collision may occur from no fault of their own. Tractor-trailer drivers are only human. What that means is that they can make mistakes just like other motorists. For instance, the driver may decide to get behind the wheel intoxicated, text and drive, speed, or fail to follow other traffic laws. Unfortunately, when a wreck happens because of these negligent acts, people can sustain severe injuries such as...
• Broken Bones
• Partial Or Full Paralysis
• Internal Bleeding/Organ Damage
• Spinal And Brain Injuries
Additionally, death is a real and adverse possibility with these types of accidents too. Passenger cars, trucks, and SUVs are simply no match for the size and weight of a big-rig. Even with today's airbags and safety features, loss of life is a potential outcome of truck crashes.
Hire A Truck Accident Attorney To Seek Compensation For Your Damages
If it can be proven that the tractor-trailer operator was reckless, careless, or negligent, a victim or their family may be entitled to a fair compensation amount. Taking these large corporations on alone can be stressful, overwhelming, and nearly unbearable, though. Why? Well, these institutions usually have legal teams on retainer. Those professionals can make the injured party feel as if they are on trial by twisting the truth, leaving him or her wanting to bury their head in the sand and hide.
