Catastrophic Truck Accident Injuries

Fatal Truck accidents in AmericaSemi-trucks are very large, very heavy vehicles. It goes without saying that they cause horrendous devastation when they are involved in collisions with other motor vehicles. If you or a loved one was involved in a truck accident like this, you may be facing life-altering injuries, such as:

  • Injuries to the back, neck, and spinal cord
  • Loss of limbs, fingers, or toes
  • Severe burns
  • Disfiguring scars
  • Life-threatening internal organ trauma
  • Injuries that compromise normal bodily functions

If a family member died in a crash caused by a semi-truck, you have experienced irreparable harm. Although no amount of compensation can undo that loss, a wrongful death claim does provide a means of pursuing justice. In the event of successful monetary recovery, the compensation award helps you pay for losses and expenses related to the crash, such as your loved one’s medical bills, funeral/burial/cremation costs, and it helps to make up for the loss of your loved one’s future financial contributions.
