Consequences of Truck Accidents
Each year, thousands of people are injured or lose loved ones to accidents involving large trucks. If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of a truck driver or their trucking company, you could potentially be facing life-long consequences for an accident that wasn’t even your fault.
You might be saddled with steep medical bills for an injury that takes you months or even years to recover from, and that’s if you’re not disabled for life. At The Law Office of Reuven Epstein, we’ve seen injuries ranging from scrapes to broken bones, sore necks to severe spinal damage that requires years of surgeries and physical therapy. The cost of medical treatments and prescriptions adds up quickly.
In addition to bodily injury, many accident victims suffer severe emotional and psychological trauma. It’s not uncommon for accident victims to suffer from anxiety, depression, and even PTSD as a result of their trauma. These emotional and psychological effects can be long-lasting and life-altering.
During your recovery time, your lost wages from missed work are adding up, compounding your financial burden.
Your life might be forever changed by an accident, and worst of all, the consequences extend to negatively impact your entire family.
To add insult to injury, the insurance providers for trucking companies will try to deny victims the full compensation they deserve. If your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to damages to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and future expenses associated with your injuries.
What Should You Do If You’ve Been Injured in a Truck Accident?
The first thing you should do is seek immediate medical care. Even minor injuries like burns and scrapes require professional attention to prevent infection, and minor neck pain can often worsen after the initial adrenaline spike from an accident has faded.
The second thing you should do is hire a seasoned truck accidents attorney to fight for the full compensation that you’re entitled to as a victim. An attorney will investigate the accident and bring in expert opinions and witness accounts before going up against the insurance company for you to secure maximum damages.
