Trucking lawsuits can help families recover after tragedy. Serious injuries can happen in any wreck. But those with 18-wheelers and other trucks are more likely to be serious. Most deaths in large truck crashes are people riding in passenger vehicles. (e.g., smaller cars with families, and regular folks in them). These people are in danger because the cars they are riding in are much smaller than the 18-wheelers that hit them. In 2020, 4,014 people died in large truck crashes. By a long shot, most were not in the large truck. They were in the other cars, walking down the street, or riding bikes.

Semis can weigh 20-30 times as much as your car. They are taller and further from the ground. This can cause smaller cars to underride trucks in crashes, which can cause extremely serious personal injuries and wrongful death. Even in good conditions, heavy trucks cannot stop very quickly. It is even worse on wet and slippery roads. Tired truck drivers are known to cause crashes and cause serious personal injury and wrongful death. Truck drivers are required by law to limit the amount of time they are on the road. Surveys show that many of them break the rules to work longer than they are allowed. More than 100,000 commercial trucks are in crashes every year, injuring about 130,000 people.

Injuries include brain injury, spine injury, back injury, neck injury, knee injury, concussion, burns, broken arms, broken legs, and wrongful death. The road to recovery from these serious personal injuries can be long, frustrating, and expensive. While the injured person is recovering, their family is often saddled with the burden of caring for them, even though they do not know how. When an injured person receives at-home medical care from an untrained family member, not only can it be hard on their relationship, it is dangerous for the injured person.

It is important to hire a personal injury lawyer with experience in trucking lawsuits as soon after the accident as possible. They can help the injured person recover the money necessary to get the kind of safe medical care they need, and take some of the burden off the family.
