More than 10,000 people are involved in truck accidents every month in the United States. Many of these accidents involve some type of negligent or reckless actions. We see many truck accidents take place as a result of drivers who are speeding to their destination, fall asleep while behind the wheel, or engage in other reckless actions.
After being hurt in a truck accident due to the negligence of another driver, victims have the ability to file a personal injury claim against the responsible party. These legal claims can provide financial relief for various damages that a victim faces. This includes medical expenses incurred as well as compensation for pain and suffering that they experienced due to the crash.
If property damage has occurred, such as damage to personal belongings or vehicle repair costs, they can request compensation for these damages as well. Another type of damage that an individual harmed by an accident can seek compensation for is the lost income due to being forced out of work to recover from their injuries.
