If you were involved in a truck accident that caused you to suffer serious injuries, know that you are alone. Unfortunately, victims of trucking accidents often sustain the most catastrophic injuries because these vehicles are massive and weigh tons. When trucks collide with smaller vehicles, the end result is never good and people may not only suffer major injuries, but also extensive property damage.
Thankfully, when you are a truck accident victim, the law allows you to take action if the collision can be attributed to negligence. Sometimes, a truck driver may be negligent while driving and cause an accident or it may later be discovered that a trucking company is to blame for a collision. Regardless of who is negligent, one thing is certain, and that is that victims have the right to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for their injuries, property damage, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
