Truck accidents can be devastating. Unfortunately, they are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries in the United States every year. Far too often, victims of truck accidents are left with severe spinal cord fractures, broken bones, and other injuries that require extensive medical care.
After a truck accident, victims are often forced to go through extensive medical treatment that can last for several weeks or even months. Regrettably, the costs of care can be significant. In order to ease some of the strains that truck accident victims are forced to deal with, they have the ability to file a personal injury claim. This type of legal action can provide financial relief for medical costs, vehicle repairs, and more.
It is important that victims are able to identify who is liable for the truck accident. This can be quite complicated due to the fact that truck accidents often involve multiple parties that share liability. Some of the parties who you may be able to file a claim against include:
