A fully loaded 18-wheeler (also known as a semi truck, tractor trailer, or big rig) can weigh up to twenty times as much as a typical car. Since there is such a large weight disparity between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, semi truck accidents often result in serious injury or death for those in a smaller car.
If you or a loved one has sustained serious injuries in an accident with an 18-wheeler, you may be able to take legal action to recover damages. Compensation that personal injury victims are often entitled to receive include money for things like:
- medical bills,
- lost wages,
- prescription drug costs,
- rehabilitation, and
- pain and suffering.
Only an experienced 18-wheeler accident lawyer can tell you exactly what damages you are entitled to receive under the law and help you fight to collect those damages.
If an accident results in death, the victim’s family may pursue a wrongfuldeath claim. A wrongful death claim allows family members to seek justice on behalf of their loved one and receive compensation for the afore mentioned damages in addition to funeral costs.
