Surviving a traffic accident can be one of the most traumatic ordeals you will ever experience. And although a minor fender bender is usually just an inconvenience, other incidents could prove to be catastrophic, causing long-term injuries to yourself and passengers—or even fatalities. Accidents involving trucks tend to be much worse statistically, simply because of the sheer weight involved. While a car weighs only around 4,000 pounds on the average, a large truck could wait up to 80,000 pounds.
When both vehicles are going at high speeds, there could be little hope for escaping without injury. Typical injuries from truck accidents include neck and spinal damage, along with the potential for traumatic brain injury or serious concussions, broken bones, and many other health issues that lessen over time but still have long-lasting consequences to health. Along with the accident, however, comes the need to file a claim—and if you have been injured, it could develop into a serious case against the other party. This could be a difficult task at any point, but especially if you are in pain and need to focus on recuperating. Taking on the other insurer—and what could ultimately end up being a trucking company too—requires an experienced injury attorney like Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, PLLC.
Do not try to take on any of these other parties on your own; it is necessary to enlist experienced legal help with knowledge of how trucking companies often respond to insurance claims after a motorist has been hurt due to the negligence of one of their drivers—and it is often extremely disappointing to watch other corporations think only of their own financial agenda. That is the stark reality though, and precisely why you need as much protection as possible.
