The physical and emotional impact of a truck crash is immediate — permanent injuries or the sudden loss of a family member. However, victims will feel additional effects long after the initial explosive impact of a tractor-trailer collision. Serious or catastrophic physical injuries can lead to lost income and enormous medical bills. Families of fatal truck accident victims must endure financial hardship resulting from the loss of income and final medical expenses.
When faced with these serious consequences, truck accident victims and their families must combat the resistance of insurance companies and secure rightful compensation for their losses.
